Is the Artwork SIG alive?

I've been working through the various SIGs, trying to determine which
ones are active. I'm curious about the state of the Artwork SIG.

<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork" title="https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork">https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork</a>

Is this still an ongoing effort, or is it "done"?

Hello Rich,

Done? That's a good question. The CentOS Project still demands a new
artistic motif for each major release it produces and re-branding is
another essential part of the journey.

However, consider for a moment what happened with CentOS 7 artwork
design process. It was not discussed in the public media (e.g., wiki,
mailing list) and appeared all of a sudden in the distribution final
release. None of the Artwork SIG members listed in the wiki at that
time designed it, nor mentioned attribution to the work under the
Artwork SIG wiki space. Surely I don't have enough information on this
but the root of that decision/process may help you find the answer you
are looking for.

The CentOS Board intervention may be helpful here, in order to clarify
the process expected, set it on the Artwork SIG wiki space and move on
with whatever it is. But at least know what it is, if possible.

This topic affects directly the CentOS Project visual identity, so it
is a delicate one.

Best regards,

While that is true, I for one would definitely want community
participation in the next round of artwork we need.

There is still plenty of scope to improve on what we have for 7 as well

an excellent and important inroads into Fedora community participation.
It helps people realize that contributing to open source isn't all
about programming (which is an important realization, because in a
distro, programming isn't even a majority of the work we need to do).
