	Even better, do you have a link ?

	Gosh; I -think- we would prolly want to use an extremely liberal
license for our templates, CC0, or somesuch: having rights over other
people's documents seems a bit unfortunate.

	Is there any chance of asking the owners of those images for a CC0
license statement ? (I'm well up for crediting their contribution to the
project in some suitable way as a whole).

	Either way - this sounds exciting to me, improving our default
templates is something that's been needed for a long time.

	What can I do to make that easier for you ? also - do we want to kick
out some of the existing templates ?

	The final thing to say is - do these templates need translation ? if
so, Gabor is working on a more efficient way to do that - current means
of doing that are simply too terrible ;-)

	All the best,
