I've received some feedback off-lists, and i think we can do this in
#debian-meeting @ irc.oftc.net. date and time to be announced really
soon, but the plan is follow the debian-installer procedure if nobody
tell us otherwise.

I think that minor changes wouldn't hurt yes, but keep in mind that
instead two images (etch and sid) we will start with six wallpapers. I
don't really care if the size is sane, the artwork looks good and
we've rules for the following changes.

I would like to point out that this is based as in 'following the
guidelines' and not really looking like the wallpapers as Joss pointed
out on irc.

That would be good if at least you and Simon show up in the meeting then.

pkg-kde and Ryan, thoughts about the subject? It seems that pkg-xfce
and pkg-gnome agree with the meeting for further discussions. Could
you confirm too?
