Hi there,

artwork team is getting its hands on the bootstrap and installer
processes; backgrounds/screensavers are incoming too; and it will need
to do so on the graphic theme (ia ora so far).

For now, the team needs assistance from packagers/developers on these modules:
 - drakx (installer - perl/gtk skills/interest needed)
 - theme (bootstrap, hibernate, shutdown, backgrounds, screensavers -
plymouth skills/interest needed)

to help to:
 - better understand how graphics/animations are and can be used (and
maybe, later, build quick mockup tools);
 - replace them;
 - cleanup (remove obsolete stuff, maybe break these modules into
smaller, more to-the-point ones);
 - document (help future artwork and dev people to get a better grasp
on these modules).

This is not for alpha2 (although a quick overview would be welcome)
but for beta1 (and later of course); work would start at once anyway.

Volunteers? if you are, please join mageia-artwork@ and/or #mageia-artwork.
