Hi there,

Will be here: http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=mageia_visual_identity_guidelines
- I'll update it today, from the various some of us already posted on
the list or other pages.

Those are the two most important pieces for alpha2. And we really need
persons to help in these two reviews:

so that we have a big picture and we can update and fix these for
alpha2. Any volunteer?

This is the first action item that's needed. Or we should organize the
team differently. Advice welcome. As I wrote past week, I'm ok to take
the lead/representative side but that still needs a co-leader or
co-representative who can help animate the team and attend weekly
Council meetings.
