The Creative Commons ShareAlike license was chosen for cairo-artwork.

In a comparison of the permissions and restrictions of the ShareAlike license
and the CC-GNU LGPL (Creative Commons GNU LGPL), the only obvious difference
seemed to be that the ShareAlike license has no source code restriction.
As artwork will in some cases not have source code (and the CC-GNU LGPL, like
the GNU LGPL is intended for software, not artwork), this seemed a nice fit.

Carl Worth <cworth at isi.edu> and Keith Packard <keithp at keithp.com> decided to
adopt the freedesktop.org-colored scarab beetle holding a hacker-emblemed orb
as the new cairo logo. The new logo debuted as part of Carl's Friday morning
cairo presentation at an X Developer's Meeting - XDevConf.

cairo-artwork is born. A CVS module was imported and the first official version
of the new cairo logo was committed.

Richard D. Worth <richard at theworths.org> drew a scarab beetle in SVG
(Scalable Vector Graphics), commissioned for use as bullets in a cairo
presentation, replacing earlier bitmap beetle bullets.

cairo-artwork - Artwork for cairo

cairo-artwork is artwork intended to support the cairo graphics
library (http://www.cairographics.org). This includes logos, banners
icons and other suitable stuff. All cairo-artwork should be

cairo-artwork was started by Richard D. Worth <richard at theworths.org>.
What is now the new cairo logo was originally drawn in answer to a
request by Carl Worth <cworth at isi.edu> to draw a suitable replacement
for the bitmap beetle bullets used in and earlier presentation by
Keith Packard <keithp at keithp.com>. This replacement would be done in
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) in order to showcase the capabilities of
cairo. Colored by freedesktop.org and with a hacker-emblemed orb in his
hands, this scarab beetle was selected by Carl and Keith to be the
new cairo logo. cairo-logo.svg was the start of cairo-artwork.
