ALL submissions MUST come with a waiver, to allow Mageia free use of the 
image in any way and to state that the work is entirely their own 
creation/property. This is not common sense, it is a legal necessity! 
Mageia cannot afford to be sued or have artwork removed after release.

A submission process needs to be put in place and followed strictly. A 
standard form/wording needs to be drafted and reviewed fast!
