Agreed. Sketches are already usually uploaded to either fedorapeople.org
or are shoved on our current wiki, and that's how it should be. The git
repo would just be for contingency.

There is none, other than integration with our git repo, which is not
necessary. (see below)

I do, at least. And I have before. The current DesignService makes it
harder to follow conversations between people, while a ticket-based
system keeps things rolling smoothly, and separate from any others.

In this case you'd have to either do the first or the third. Hotlinking
is considered a "security risk" and is disabled. I'm an advocate for the
first one, unless we can come up with an extension to read a file out of
a git repo. (not likely)
