Yes I signed up for that service.
They listed following formats
vector: SVG, PDF, EPS
bitmap: PNG, JPEG
I have posted information about the recommended size on #994.

We should start right away. There was enough time for collecting
comments now it is time for action. If you weren't proposing to help
out I would have started to realize the final image today anyway. As
the deadline is nearing it would be good to finish it a little earlier
than just in time.
Please note I am talking about the poster for CLT here. If we want
to reuse it for documentation, we have plenty of time for another
round of fine tuning.

IMHO users should be targeted primarily. But I have a good feeling
leaving the small developer specific part in.
