Yup, for my part a git repo would be really helpful. Spinning the source
tarball by hand is not an exactly nice experience ;-) Also keeping the
images in git (those that go into the package) is better than having
everything stored on my notebook (note that the images in the packages
aren't taken directly from wiki, but also resized/cropped to have all
the same sizes). Another thing is, that if we would do the wallpaper in
inkscape or blender, we could generate the PNGs/JPGs during the package
build. And git (or another SCM) is a nice way for keeping a log of
changes that are done to the sources from which we build. And of course
its much more transparent ;-)
