just to be sure, what is the "logo" you are talking about?

I'm talking about the Geronimo boxes as in,
this is a unique image that is to be used only for the 1.1 release in this case. Each image
would be used only once, I can't see why attaching that unique image file to a unique page
is such a bad thing.

If the images are attached to confluence and we export the space, all the content gets exported.
Hence we have a self contained copy of the web site with very limited external dependencies,
that is for the actual downloads.

Even if we serve those images from svn we would still have to copy every single one from site/trunk/art
to site/trunk/docs/images

One additional tiny benefit on the attachment approach is that the image served from confluence
is approx 4 times smaller in size compared to the one we have on svn. I know, I did that to
make the rendering a bit faster but my point is that we will still have to do some additional
steps either way, not only svn cp.

Now, if we want to serve all the static content from all our the cwiki spaces directly from
svn that's a different story.
