My intention is to give the copyright away to the FreeBSD project and 
let THEM publish the stuff on THEIR website. Since they don't need a 
permission from themselves, there will be no problem ;-)

But -- at the moment -- the "legal status" of my artwork-project is 
somehow questionable. It depends on whether you consider sending drafts 
to the mailing-list is a form of "publishing" or not. But I would see no 
use in asking the FreeBSD-foundation for formal approval of each 
different draft.
