Re: desktop-base/ciel and squeeze: plan of action

I had to think of this old Maoist saying: "Those who don't work, needn't eat!"
Seriously, all humour aside, we really should announce a deadline, let's say
5 days from now on, where ppl can have a say by just posting their opinion

There is a winner, there are others who lose - I am OK with that. And it is always hard to decide. But to declare a consensus, when there hasn't even been a discussion about it after the contest - this is in my opinion not the way you should do it.

This has been an artwork contest, officially announced in the press. <http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online/News/Debian-Project-Wants-User-Art-for-Squeeze-OS>

I think a bit more transparency in the way of finding the winner would be fair to the people you invited to contribute.
