which I don't know. Anyway, we can't keep all images from one version to
another because it'd grow enormous over time.
Not sure if there are other reasons. Fathi?
the rationale behind this changes are:
1) these files were deprecated 2 years ago.
2) since desktop-base 4.x (december 2006), we try to provide a _full artwork set_ including
bootloader, bootsplash, display managers, desktop splash and wallpapers.
We provide _default_ Debian artwork and random wallpapers doesn't fit in a full set.
3) As Yves-Alexis said, we can't keep all images in desktop-base.
I hope I have answered to your questions.
I didn't have discussed this change, probably a mistake...
