Dear -publicity team,
  given that apparently nobody was in charge of organizing the artwork
collection for Wheezy [1], I've tried to help out a bit on -dekstop.  It
now seems we've consensus on proceeding with the call for artwork.

[1] http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2012/01/msg00001.html

Can someone from the publicity/press team help us out with finalizing
the text of the call, starting from the excellent draft above already
provided by Jeremiah?

Here are a few thoughts / suggested changes on the above:

- also mention #debian-dekstop on irc.d.o as a contact point

- maybe anticipate that the requirements are at
  http://wiki.debian.org/DebianDesktop/Artwork/Requirements even though
  it is spelled out at wiki.d.o/DebianDesktop/Artwork/Wheezy? (not sure
  about this one)

- should we add a deadline (e.g. 2 months from now?) we will probably
  have to extend it, but I've the impression knowing there *is* a
  deadline might motivate people in participating ASAP, rather than
  waiting the very last minute

Many thanks in advance for your help,
