In Design Team ticket #155, Robyn Bergeron has asked:
"I have had some requests for banners for use in wikis, etc. for
FUDCon:Tempe. Would it be possible to get one (or more, maybe a
vertically oriented one as well?) made for FUDCon?"
I've made a set of banners by taking the logo from here:
and then rearranging elements to fit the various banner shapes. I've
deliberately kept close to that design without embellishments for the
sake of rapid recognisability, though I've used rotation in some
variants to allow size increases for extra impact.
Since I couldn't find any strict rules for use of the FUDCon logo (only
a draft mentioning that "the FUDCon logo is freely licensed and we
simply ask people to use them wisely") I wanted to check whether such
rearrangements are okay first.
A dependency issue has been blocking composes of the Design suite spin since
September 8th. Peter Robinson just rebuilt the gnome-python2-desktop source
package which includes the gnome-python2-evolution package, which is what
was blocking the Design suite spin composes (at least most recently).
He is hoping to get people to test this for problems so that we can get it
pushed as an update for beta or shortly afterwards.
You can get a version to test from:
Just a couple of issues that were brought forward from the latest Owners
and (Co) Maintainers Email Meeting that require some public opinion
regarding future action(s).

There's no doubt whether we like it or not, the Gnome-Shell will be
implemented as the replacement and default desktop environment for
Fedora including its Spin Desktops, somewhere along the line.
Personally, I'm no fan of the Gnome-Shell (Gnome 3), hence my own
complete migration to the KDE4 desktop environment in the previous
I am curious as to how Gnome-Shell is going to affect the Spins? ie.
Design Suite Spin.
Will it affect performance and productivity?
And how much control do we have in blocking it for a desktop spin?
And should we be blocking it?
Inkscape desktop icon:
I am not happy with the current process of having a Inkscape icon and
link on the desktop upon a fresh install of the Design Suite Spin.
To me, it simply does not make sense and poses more questions that what
It's easy enough to remove using the kickstart config. But before I go
and do that, I require the opinions of others.
Owners and (Co) Maintainers Email Meetings:
Next meeting due date-- September 22, 2010
In a bid to get the current Design Suite below 700MB ISO size, I have
revised the kickstart but need it tested first.
Can I please get some users to test this new kickstart and post back
thoughts and experiences.

I still didn't book a hostel/hotel for Thursday-Monday in Zurich, and
I wonder if anyone in the design team would like to let me know where
they are staying, since it would be cool to chat about stuff in the
As I've been doing some tasks for F14 & FUDcon I've been trying to
document my workflow as I go along and write up some how-tos:
I would encourage everyone to think about the kinds of stuff they do on
this team and what might make a useful how-to write up to help us
onboard more designers or even simply increase our own skills &
knowledge within our existing group. Having documented workflows I think
can also be a great resource if we don't have enough time to help out
another team with a design - if we can at least point them to a how-to
they might be able to get it done on their own.
Some other needed topics I can think of:
- a little writeup on how licensing works and how creative commons !=
public domain, and why you should license your own works as openly as
- how to install fonts on fedora
- where to find great clipart and freely-licensed assets (brushes,
