We share everything in this project. To gather views, directions and
contributions, it's important to release early and often your work to
everyone. Making this automatic (+properly licensed, integrated in the
workflow of everyone) from the start helps to:
 - focus on the work,
 - lower the entry bar for new contributors,
 - show how we work,
 - give some assurance work in progress won't be lost/stuck in a closed area,
 - "release early, release often".

That doesn't mean that everyone should or will track every changes.
That doesn't mean either that everyone may change something (this may
be restricted to the artwork team + a public drop box). That doesn't
prevent to make some cleaning once final formats are reached either *.

* for that, you may name a root folder as "Final" for what is stable
and long-term (and can be used by automatic processes for integration,
even when it is patched/fixed) and another root folder
"WorkInProgress" for what is clearly not ready for prime time, may be
wiped out anytime, but still available for review/patch/etc.

Ok, no pb. We will get to something I'm sure. Thanks for sharing btw :-)
