i think so. public voting on the mailing list is fine, imho.

or they could be used in the next one. doing the artwork for a single
image includes a lot of work (see
so i don't think we want to do that for multiple images at the moment.

i think so. being a developer says something about coding skills but
says nothing about design skills, so i think that would be fair.

as we discussed already, we want it to be licensed under the free art
license, wich allows you to do so:
"You have the right to distribute copies of this work; whether modified
or not, whatever the medium and the place, with or without any charge"

given that we have only 4 weeks till pre2, i would say 'rc1'.

i think so. otherwise we can't really use it in other places..

i think it's ok to send in other's art, but then obviously the winner is
the original author ;)
