I think it is a great idea! It worked really well on the OOo wiki and I
think it will work again!

as this topic is relevant for design and marketing, I don't see a way to
avoid cross-posting. Follow-up on the marketing list please.
During the last weeks several people worked on design elements to be used
in order to improve knowledge and public awareness for LibreOffice.
Marc is working hard to put them all together on the marketing wiki, but I
feel that we still miss an easy entry point for people interested in using
such resources on their website, for marketing activities and so on.
Back in OOo times we had a gallery showing different categories of such
artwork which served quite well for people searching for a web button, a
banner or a CD/DVD label.
Before I start working on migrating this gallery to our wiki (as I created
it, there is no licensing issue), I'd like to ask your opinion:
Do you think this is a good approach?
In contrast to the OOo gallery I'd like to see this wiki page as entry
point to the officially approved designs - positioned at the marketing area
of the wiki (at least until we put them up on the website).
Agreed. It should be explicit what objects in the gallery are "official"
and which ones are "unofficial" designs so that marketing can make really
good use of the area. (We keep getting lots of questions on the design list
about different resources.)
The development area on the design wiki might get a similar entry point
(for contributors, including the official source file necessary for using
them as basis for branding based design), but I think the marketing / user /
supporter resources are more important at the moment.
Agreed. It seems right now design is okay with sending links or making
temporary wiki pages for current projects (motif for example).
Any questions? proposals? ideas?
Perhaps I will have more constructive feedback when the page starts to take
