> Hi guys,
> You may know that Mageia's installer shows some promotional pictures
> during the installation[1], which are supposed to demonstrate the main
> characteristics and assets of Mageia. For Mageia 1, a contributor took
> the time to design a few pictures to promote some aspects of Mageia,
> and these are still shown in the installer of Mageia 2 beta 1.
> Now, it would be good for Mageia 2's look that we design some new
> pictures. To do so, it could be great that Marcom and Artwork work
> together to come with a bunch of pretty professional-looking pictures
> which enforce Mageia's values and trademark.
> The fact is, artwork freeze is on March, 10th, i.e. in a bit more than
> two weeks. So we need to decide what we want to do, who will do it and
> using which resources and content.
> So, what are your ideas for these pictures?
> I had an initial idea, but you may find better ones. I thought that we
> could do 5 pictures, each dedicated to one of the core values of
> Mageia[2], i.e.:
> - Mageia is social software
> - Mageia is powerful technology
> - Mageia is knowledge
> - Mageia is quality
> - Mageia is open relations
> I have no idea about how these key points could be conveyed through
> artwork, but it could give us hints for the content.
> There could be other possibilities, such as promoting the content
> included in the distribution and the repositories: Mageia Control
> Center, LibreOffice, latest version of KDE, powerful IDEs, awesome
> games such as Battle for Wesnoth, etc..
> We could also focus on the community, displaying small overviews of
> the work of some of our teams, etc..
> So, what are your ideas?

hi, if there is enough manpower, we could use the core values for the DVD 
edition, while we could show our major features in the LiveCD edition, to 
match the aim of these different editions.  I've proposed also a list of short 
phrases in the old wiki, but now i can't retrieve them in the new one.
