Well, Ossama kinda is - he created the site and as such is the defacto
owner of it :-)

We wanted to retain all art work that's ever submitted.  What is
unfortunately lacking is the "comment" section on each picture does
not denote the owner of the art-work or the upload date (that ought
to change I hope soon).  The various art pieces that are not official
should note an appropriate string to make it clear that it was a mere
suggestion that was not adopted - rejected is a harsh word, maybe
"unapproved" would covey that info better next to status.

In short, each art piece/screenshot, etc should have the following
listed in its description (at least),

 + Owner/Creator
 + Date
 + Status (offical logo, unapproved, screenshot, etc ?)
 + Brief Description (ie. screenshot of QT-3 or Gnome-1.4 or ...)

Yup, that needs to be there with an 'OFFICIAL' status :-)

I agree; that would make it cleaner/easier to navigate.

Thanks (as usual) for the suggestions.  Let's wait until Ossama gets
freed-up a bit from the recent frantic translation push.
