At FOSDEM I had the opportunity to be part in a meeting with organizers
for Libre Graphics Meeting (http://libregraphicsmeeting.org/2010/) and
they expressed interest so I submited a talk proposal:
LGM is taking place in Brussels between 27 and 30 May and I intend to
participate (not only for the above mentioned talk). Hopefully Martin
will be able to get a windows into his university exams schedule and
participate too (with the promised help from the Community Architecture
I hope some other members form the team will be able to attend (don't
you want to meet the developers of your favorite graphics application?
other cool users of those apps?) and maybe we can have a small Fedora
Design gang at the event.

I don't know what is the current nominee for that wallpaper, but in my view it should be something like the Past Modern style of the Wallpaper of Mozilla - light, a little bit light grey (associated usually with silver), a little bit blue grey - in that direction.
It looks very cool and pleasant.
With the increased size of the desktop spin (upon which games is based) and
I think some game data sets getting a bit bigger it was going to be hard to
get the games spin down to size by cutting out desktop stuff. Instead for
this release I cut one of the largest games, alienarena, from the spin.
While the game will be missed, this seemed to be the best course for F13.
For F14 things look very good for getting back 10% of the games spin size
(about 400 MB) using lzma for compressing spins. That should allow me to
get alienarena back in again, barring significant increases in the size
of other games or the desktop spin.
i value everyones input so far but i think weave driffted off the pathe
the wallpapere will be abstrack with no sillye rockettes and will be dark blue in desing much

One of the linux myths is that using the operative system means using the
command line, but why should we demonize it?
Introducing... The Fedora Cheat Cube!
No longer does using the terminal have to involve memorizing obscure
commands, you can always have a fun cube around to remember the important
things, like yum commands and navigating with the terminal.
This would be a fun thing to hand out at Fedora booths at events, and I
intend to get this translated into spanish and hand them out at the FLISOL.
Now, it wouldn't be much help if I didn't give out the source, which you can
One of the things I've been suggested to do is to include the 4 Foundations
somewhere (Possibly on the "Fedora cheat cube" side?), and also a link to
the http://join.fedoraproject.org website.
Another idea I have, is to prepend a $ on commands that can be run as a
normal user, and # to commands that *require* root to work, then add a
footnote on each side to indicate that.
Other than that, the help I'd really appreciate is giving the frontal face
(The one with the Fedora logo) a make over, so it actually looks good.
Thanks for your time!
