Per se, we don't have yet a consistent set of guidelines, neither for
artwork, for style, for charter.

There are:
 - the above artguide that died somehow after we got our logo
 - http://www.mageia.org/en/charter.html which is a quick style guide
for Web sites
 - the mageia_visual_identity_guidelines page is a placeholder,
indeed. It can be not imported.

What's important is that we at least have a place where we gather
links/info about all recommandations for Mageia artwork and designs.

Guidelines are here just to say what exists (opt. how it has been
built/designed), how to use it, and how not to use it. And who to ask
for requests that don't fit in the current guide.

This relates to:
 - Mageia visual identity (logo, colours, layout) (in coord. w/ marcom
& council)
 - community logos equivalent
 - CD/DVD covers, printouts, posters
 - ressources inside the distribution (splashscreens, icons)
 - web sites

That can be extensive and we don't have all yet, and it will take
time. But that's the frame.
