Stradivari..... Sounds like a violin, could do a musical theme, violins, an orchestra,
stylized notes ect.

Hi Design Team.
As you're probably aware we are working early on the F12 naming
process, to provide the Fedora Design team plenty of time for theming
the next release, as requested. The community submitted names to the
wiki page, and then the Board did a vote on the community names that
passed the initial review process. The top names will be sent to
Legal for final approval and then turned into a ballot on which the
whole community will vote. Therefore, the top name on the Board's
list may not end up winning the final vote. I'm only going to list
the top 16 or so names here to make things easier for this team -- the
idea is that I will send about 12 names to Legal, and hope for at
least 8 back that pass legal review.
I would ask that people remember that themes can be very broad and
simply "inspired" by a name. For example, "Heisenberg" is the name
a scientist who postulated the Uncertainty Principle (that measuring
certain subatomic events actually changed the nature of those
events). So that name lends itself to things like atoms/molecules, or
other interconnectedness that could represent community, and building
structure from small things.
Before I send the list on to Legal, I would like the Design team to
look at these names and give me some indication of their themeability.
I think the easiest way to accomplish this is for anyone participating
in the Design team to indicate whether they think a name *can* be
themed, either with "+1" and/or an idea for how to do it. If there
are any names for which no one indicates themeability, I will consider
leaving those off the list for final review by Legal.
Josh Boyer, the Board, and I are performing this process early --
before Fedora 11 is even released! -- because the Design Team has
asked for that repeatedly. Therefore the sooner you can get me your
input, the sooner I can send these on to Legal, and set up a community
voting process for the actual F12 name. I would really like it if I
can get people's input in the next 24-48 hours!
+1 should be probably possible to do some simplified or
version of this deity.
unsure. I can imagine connection to Constantinople
but I don't have in
mind any concrete idea that would work good as default wallpaper
+1 either stylised satellites or deep-space like view
not sure what this is, wikipedia says it's in Italy,
so we could maybe
go with some landscape images, but seeing how we failed with that for
These are all names of (imaginary) people, it seems... For Cimrman you
can go with probably anything (since he invented everything...) also it
appeals to me because I am Czech... Stradivari would be probably nice
for taking some parts of violins and building the themes around it,
similar for Elvis (though with guitar or just music in general). Not
sure about the rest... Maybe others would have some ideas on these.
