I'm working on the project AskFedora UX/UI and functionality overhaul under
GSoC this summer. I have created some mockups for the pages in AskFedota
which can be viewed at my blog -
Also I have set up a repository in fedoradesign github where I have pushed
my current work on the mockups -
I would like to have some feedback on these mockups and would like to know
the improvements that I need to do further and whether there are any
additional things that I need to include in the designs. The views of all
of you would be very important to this project.

well, I really prefer nr. 6 too; by less dense you mean fewer or more
evenly distributed on the surface?
The problem here is that the sparkles also generate the pattern in the
background, so fewer spots mean a darker bg. I'm not sure there is a way
to export the sparkles and the background separately, but I'll try that

I had an idea to make up a looping video to have up on the projectors
instead of having them blank while people are waiting for talks.
Here is what I came up with:
The ticket tracking this is here if you have any ideas.
I was thinking about working on making it longer, and perhaps running
through the sponsors, and maybe other important information, slide-show
style but in a video, but will hack at adding that stuff after the other
print stuff for flock is done.
There is a student working on multi monitor wallpaper support for Nuancier.
You can look for his progress here:
That we provide at least dual monitor wallpaper, was more then once
requested on us.
There are currently 24 different variations for resolutions, some might not
be from interest. The problem is simple even when it are only two monitors,
we have to produce a huge variety of different wallpapers. Its not just
produce two wallpaper and leave the scaling to the DE. Let me give you an
example. Right now I working on a laptop with an resolution of 1024x768 and
a second monitor is attached with 1920x1200 and he is standing on the left
side. So only one possibility means 2 pictures, if I change the position of
the monitor to the right side it are already 4. Not speaking that some
developer have often an attached monitor in portrait mode for reading
What it means for us as Design Team means, we have to decide if we want to
provide dual or multi-monitor wallpaper for the default wallpaper and then
produce just one picture large enough and the user can go to Nuancier and
get the right resolutions by them self.
So for a dual setup we would have to provide a picture 5120x2560 that would
cover, two monitors of 2560x2048 resolution and even would cover one in
portrait mode. If we want to provide a triple monitor setup it would be
Q: just dual or do we want to provide triple also?
But there are more open questions, do we want to allow user contributions
there or do we just to make as section where we produce some wallpapers for
it? If we want to make user contributions possible then is the question,
how to deal with it, I personally think the a release submission phase will
not work for this kind of wallpaper. There might be only one or maybe two
submissions in this way as you need stitched photographies. Leave as an
always submission thing might be the better option but we would not have an
mechanism we have with the election to ensure quality standards.
Q: opinions on that?
and there is one question more, for the normal supplemental wallpaper the
Fedora logo is not allowed as they are packaged and could end up in a
derivate of Fedora. But this is then just an online solution so do we want
another rules setup for them or keep the one from supplemental wallpapers?
Hope to get some of you opinions on that things
make me rich, buy my Inkscape book http://is.gd/yq5OD0 ;)
the fedora infra team has a new "git forge" application called Pagure
which essentially could replace our newish content that we have been
putting into github.
One thing that we don't have in Pagure (that we also dont have in github
either because we are using a free account) is private repos. The only
reason we would need a private repo would be to put the fedora logopack
into, since we don't publish those publiclly.
I had a brief chat with the pagure folks in #fedora-admin and it seems
that private repos may be a thing in pagure in the future though.
anyone have any thoughts?
I have been working on the design for the Badges for flock, and if you
get a chance, can you check out the current iterations I have and
provide some feedback in the ticket?
The current idea I have uses a the artwork from the flock tshirt, and
with a little work should print ok.
One thing to remember with these badges is that they are a lot smaller
than the badges in years past, so that is why there are only a few
larger elements in the design.
Hi folks :)
nirik fixed the artboard for us today. It has been broken for a while.
It has a new URL now:
For folks who haven't used it before, the artboard is just a little open
source app (shimme2) deployed on Fedora's infrastructure to give us a
place to quickly upload artwork and get comments on it. Kind of like
using imgur.com or something like that, but open source.
It's not hooked up to the Fedora account system, so you have to create a
separate account for it to use it.
Please feel free to use this as a tool to share sketches / ideas / etc.
