Quite a while ago, i floated an idea in the Workstation working group to
clean out the older wallpapers that we ship by default in workstation, and
replace them with a new set of Fedora-specific ones that are chosen from
all best of the previous Supplemental wallpapers.
NOTE: this will not change THE default wallpaper, which will still be the
one that the design team works on each release.
THe WG has approved this proposal  in the latest WG meeting, and now i
am bringing this up for disussion here.
Basically, the proposal is to ship just the following as the default
wallpapers (i.e. what people will see in the Wallpapers tab in the Settings
GUI) in Fedora Workstation:
1. Provide the default Fedora wallpaper for the release, that is created
for each release by the Fedora Design Team. This will remain the default
wallpaper as it currently is.
2. Provide the default wallpaper & lock screen artwork for the upstream
desktop release (i.e. the default GNOME wallpaper and GNOME Lockscreen for
the release of GNOME being shipped)
3. Remove all the other wallpapers we currently ship and create a new
set of the 15 wallpapers from the previous Fedora supplemental wallpapers.
Note also, that 15 was chosen to keep the wallpaper chooser tidy, as it
displays them in rows of 3.

will be 2 working days till 2017-May-15 for packaging, before the

Can anybody (looking at you Luya? :-) ) package kuler2gpl?
Swatchbooker isnt packaged anymore and is broken on new Fedora installs (if you upgraded in place on an old systen it still works.) Kuler2gpl gives us some of the lost functionality. It is here:
It would be nice to figure out if swatchbooker could be packaged again too. I'm not sure why it's not anymore - is the maintainer inactive? It's a super useful tool.
