Hopefully you have heard by now that we are doing our own summer
coding program starting this year. ;-)
Is anyone interested in working on design for this?
One exciting challenge is that we are focusing on coding this summer,
but there is interest in non-coding programs -- design and
documentation and l10n -- sort of a summer of content. Any design
work now should think about that future.
We also want to run again during summer in the Southern Hemisphere
(Sep to Feb), so it might be an ongoing program, with one run every
Ideas we've had so far include:
* A logo
* Program-specific website (built on current www.fp.org framework)
* e.g. summercoding.fedoraproject.org
* Posters for school campuses.
* T-shirts for participants (mentors, students, etc.)
I filed a main tracking ticket just in case. If folks are
interested in this work, we can make individual tickets for each
item. (Right plan?)
You may know that Google does a whole design theme every year, and we
can adopt that platform. Other programs doing a similar thing are
building on Google's past work:
Let us know what you think.

The whole idea is to get these pages as close to the mockups as possible:
I should have included a few items that are needed to be done.
- in #desktop tab, align button so that its closer to text
- create new images (#download tab desktop icon and screenshots)
- fix image "Fedora Default" and "Most Compatible" icons
- better spacing on right-side column
- verify pages works with different browsers/OSes and resolutions
- complete "Download Finish Splash" page
- the left side link "Get Fedora (Redesign)", should really be linked
from the stg.fp.o/get-fedora page in the "View full list of options
for getting Fedora ..." link. I put the link there for ease.
- text needs to be updated to reflect F13
- links need to be updated to correct locations (i've put in #! as
link location fillers)
Note that we are purposely leaving out the header and footer as in the
mockup. Those pieces are related more to the complete fp.o site
Thanks again for the help,
I have just installed Fedora 13 on another computer to test it. And
when I open up Nautilus and Firefox I see totally new arrow icons and
such. Are they gonna be there for real in the final release? I really
think they are SO ugly compared to the old icons :D
We got two spam tickets in our Trac system over the past couple of days
by anonymous users. I went ahead and revoked the ability for anonymous
users to create a ticket. If anybody doesn't like this, shout.

Hi Fedora People!
I've been working on a new Linux project that might be interesting for some
of you and other Linux Users in the world, so
with this mail, I want to introduce you to my new Linux project, it's called
"Tux-Cellar" and it's some kind of Search Engine for Linux Binaries,
it also has other features, such as a Wiki, Chat Room, Forum and a Community
System based on Google Friend Connect.
I built this webapp because I saw that many New Linux Users still want to
install software in their distros with a simple double-click
(Mostly Windows Newbies, because they're used to "exe's work")
and with this app I pretend to make "binaries finding" easier for the users
of different distros.
Tux-Cellar lets you search, find and download ".deb" , ".rpm" , "apticons"
and many other software files for Linux, it uses databases like
Debian's/Ubuntu's ones for DEBS, RpmFind and Suse's Factory for RPMS.
For DEBS and APTICONS (Fedora's and Ubuntu's Ones) I had to create Custom
Search Engines, Meanwhile for RPMS I used the "famous ones" mentioned above.
One of the goals I have for this app is to build a Community around it, so I
included Google's Social Features for that.
I've nothing more to say but Goodbye, I invite you to check out the app at:
Also, I invite you to vote for it in GAE's App Gallery at:
And if you speak spanish, you can read the official blog announcement at:
P.S. Hope you like this app and I also hope you to join to the app's
community and to fill in
the feedback survey I made, this with the goal of build toguether a better
Tux-Cellar Service for all the users around the world
*Hi Designers, As I told you before, I want to Join to the Fedora's
Designers Group and I've already claimed 1 Ticket of the Design Service
Queue, it is the #28, and by now, I've completed my first Task by creating a
New logo for REVISOR, I made 2 samples, hope you guys like them...*
*PS. Both of them are in ".png" Format with Transparent Background, feel
free to check them at:*
