I approve the usage in the tmwart repo.

Is there any particular meaning behind the color coding there? There could/should be.
This message used to be meaningful.

Ah, blasted, filenames. :)

Anyway, I thought something of a "WIP" "DONE" "CONCEPT" split indicated by color.

Yep. Maybe we could indicate that by adding WIP / FIN / CPT in right upper corner:

How about no tag for finished, but instead, the format used in the first post. It looks better and more professional, IMO. And it doesn't include our internal tag system on released work.

All TAGs in one file:
http://lasdomogrod.pl/tmw/pixeltag/TMW% ... 20Tags.xcf

Easy to use:
1. Download
2. Open in GIMP
3. Select proper base layer (INDOOR, URBAN, NATURE / WIP, CPT, FIN)
4. Complete the text fields (LICENSE, DATE, AUTHOR, SHORT NAME, VERSION)
5. Save as PNG and include to tileset

Authors codes CAN be used in case of many authors:
AXL AxlTrozz
BDN Black Don
FTJ Fother J
IRU Irukard
LEN Len
SPT Spit23
WBT Wombat
MWY Meway
Author code should be added to wiki page.

Font used in template: SILKSCREEN
http://kottke.org/plus/type/silkscreen/

Font installation under Ubuntu (no root right required):
1. copy font to /home/<user>/.fonts/ or any subdir
2. refresh font config: fc-cache -fv
f - force refresh, v - verbose

I hope you will find it useful.

I think we should discuss it first, then when we reached a final conclusion, then we can repost it, and sticky that one.

Makes it easy so new comers don't have to read 4 pages of discussion to figure out how it works.

" Part of releasing a program under the GPL is writing a copyright notice in your own name (assuming you are the copyright holder). The GPL requires all copies to carry an appropriate copyright notice. "

"This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License."
I think this should be decided on sooner rather than later (5 years from now)
