Description of problem:
The HST images that are shipped in desktop-backgrounds-extra-2.0-12.noarch.rpm
are fine but they are quite old.  The Hubble Space Telescope now has a better
camera that produces much nicer images.

It would be great if some of these could be added.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. n/a

I am willing to do the work for this.

If you want to point Garrett to some specific images to consider that might be
helpful. Better to give us pointers to images on the web rather than send 
the images themselves, so we can feel confident in copyright issues and such.


Comment 2 jmccann 2003-02-13 22:41:32 UTC
Please see the attached URL.  I am part of the team that released these images.
 They should all be in the public domain.  I am having someone double check this
right now.

Comment 3 jmccann 2003-02-14 16:38:32 UTC
Hi, please see <http://hubblesite.org/copyright/> for the official copyright
info.  In brief it states that "no claim to copyright is being asserted by STScI
and it may be freely used as in the public domain."  I am happy to help prepare
these images, please let me know.  Thanks.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still
running Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a
current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
Some information on which option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do
