R: Re: Round 3 theme and fedora-fr community

I'm little sad about our discussion.
I think everyone loud his voice more than necessary, the only problem with my image is the hilt?
Ok, but why waitin the last day to say it?
I understand your position, and believe me I've got nothing with u don't take me bad.
I worked a lot for adv agency and I know the prob with copyR, I really do my best to create something usable and free, I'm new to the concept of FREE in the open source and I think (maybe wrong) that my work will work right (sorry for bad grammar).
Sorry if I same like vinegar today but i fell under attack and i try to defend my self.
I'm glad u like Solar.
I think we (all) have to take this discussion as a new start.
Maybe I wrong, maybe U (not U u...) are wrong, I work alone and maybe I do some error. Next time I will be glad if someone help me.

Cheers and sorry

We have had egregious violations of copyright and image licensing in the 
past, due to a misunderstanding of licensing and copyright law.

A big reason for the Fedora art team producing its own work is that we 
can be confident that the artwork in Fedora is openly licensed and 
freely distributable. When artwork that is not properly licensed is 
thrown into Fedora, it not only goes against the guidelines of Fedora 
but it entirely defeats the purpose of us creating our own artwork. Part 
of the stated purpose of the art team is to create artwork that can be 
freely re-usable. Artwork that incorporates other works that have a 
restrictive license cannot meet this goal.

We are as strict on this license policy as any other team is strict on 
code licensing. There is no special treatment here.

I certainly hope a theme with questionably-licensed imagery does not win 
the vote. If it does, I will be up all night every night this week 
re-making the artwork to make sure our artwork can be Free. I am sick 
this week so a series of late nights will not be good for my health.
