I appreciate you coming forward and stepping up to take the 
responsibility for the artwork. If everyone is in agreement then I think 
we have ourselves a blag art maintainer. If there is a specific name for 
the role that would provide a better understanding to others in and out 
of the community, please forward your suggestions. The goal in having 
individuals take on a specific role is to provide a framework to begin 
managing contributions. I do not want people to feel overwhelmed that 
they are doing a "job", but providing the means for bridging areas where 
it can not be just one individuals responsibility. Each person wants to 
make contributions and I believe its important that if a group of people 
are maintaining that area, it will help to moderate how we progress. I 
want to provide contributions in every area of BLAG, but I also know 
that I can not stretch myself thin and provide the best of myself all at 
once and I thank all those again who are helping us get to the release.
