or the GRASS one, probably the best right now...


(pay attention that the github rendering is not using the right fonts
so the texts are non well aligned)

I usually modified the text using a text editor, with inkscape I was
not able, and move the text blocks and images using inkscape.

Pay attention that the space between lines is 13 pixels (you can fix
it using the text editor and set the right y value according to the
previous one)

please do the pull request only when the flyer is finalized and
discussed with your community.
