Minutes (text):


I also posted them to our wiki page here:

Mo Summary:

Topic: Meeting Time
• Should we keep at 1900 UTC or shift with winter time?
• Schendje, mizmo, & nicubunu okay with keeping it.
• We'll keep it for now

Topic:  Fedora 14 post-mortem
How did it go? How can we improve for Fedora 15? Any great ideas for
Fedora 15?

• First release in a while mizmo didn't have to do stuff last-minute
(well except for legal change on print sleeves)
• Workflow/Tooling can always be improved
• We'll trial Sparkleshare for the Fedora 15 process

Topic: FUDcon T-Shirts
• Tempe, Panama, EMEA
• We have a concept so far for FUDcon Tempe:
∘ Critique:
‣ clever use of Arizona flag design
‣ close to FUDcon 2008 design
‣ Too many colors - printing it will be expensive
∘ Moving forward:
‣ Schendje will ask Daniel to brainstorm 2-3 concepts, no sketches or
only rough sketches if any, no formal artwork.
• one idea: Fedora oasis in the desert? Fedora 'f' cacti?
• mountains?
‣ Ask Daniel to run concepts by the team before doing another iteration
‣ Explain to Daniel the issue of the flag as a symbol & too many colors
making an expensive print
‣ Invite Daniel to next week's IRC meeting for more interactive critique
• We have a poster for Panama:
∘ An amazing design
∘ already accepted
∘ we should invite xhaksx to our meetings
∘ some discussion on the radials around the Fedora logo being similar to
FUDcon 2008 shirts...  http://fedorapeople.org/groups/designteam/Fedora%
∘ maybe could do something with clouds

Topic: Installer/Anaconda usability review&  redesign project for F15

information she got from reviewing a devel-list feedback thread:

experience, will do DVD next -
