--------------------------------------------------------------

Out of interest why is svg format problematic? I'm not sure I understand the "cannot reasonably
be considered to be source" bit. It's basically plain text, far more flexible for modification
than other image formats, it can even be put under version control and show changes between
versions easily. I know other examples of ASF projects including svg files and when thinking
about it not really that different to say maven pom files in that one describes how to compile
a build and the other describes how to draw a picture.

> For context - this is following Lars' idea there: [https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/66636f8402426143a81b5bf5070a5b6957d2b5e63284f9ee06dabc82@%3Cdev.training.apache.org%3E]
to simply open a Jira issue for to-be-donated-content. I'm happy to have the process created,
refined and refactored while we go through it. I think it makes sense to do so with a guinea
pig to try things out, happy to be that guinea pig myself.
> Actual donation context: At my dayjob we are currently in the process of lifting company
knowledge about development processes with Git and GitHub. As for several projects Inner Source
best practices were adopted ([http://innersourcecommons.org)|http://innersourcecommons.org)/]
we aren't that far from the Apache Way internally.
> One way we are currently trying is to raise awareness of the various Git/Github features
through challenges/ riddles posted close to the coffee machine.
> Essentially those challenges are simply svg files that you can print and fill in. As
such I think they might make for a good sandbox to develop our content donation processes
in a test first way.
> Currently all challenges are employer-branded. Happy to drop that/ have that white-labeled.
> Kudos to [https://davidrehman.de/] for helping me out with his design skills - he helped
arrange the sheets in a way that looked much less clumsy than my own first try and still kept
space for a Monalisa Octocat.
> Caveat: Graph was inspired by Gitlab's Git cheat-sheet.
