Sounds cool! Sorry I couldn't be there...

BTW, I pimped the team a lot on This Week in Fedora 15 and also tried to
recruit some people... :)


See you at the next meeting!

> Mo Summary:
> Fedora 14 Release Party Poster
> - Emichan showed us her draft and already has posted an updated version
> based on feedback given during the meeting:
> http://emichan.fedorapeople.org/release_14.png
> http://emichan.fedorapeople.org/release_14.svg
> - We also talked about reconfiguring the release party poster design to
> fulfill ticket https://fedorahosted.org/design-team/ticket/164 and
> Emichan is going to work on it
> Fedora 14 misc
> - We have been kicking butt and taking numbers as a team this past
> release. We have 3 ninjas doing awesome work, Alexander did great work
> on the countdown banners, Alexander and Marc also did great work on the
> disc/sleeve artwork, Emichan rocked the release poster, Martin put
> together the animated backgrounds files in time for release, and Fab and
> pretty much the whole team got our first supplemental wallpapers pack
> together and it looks awesome. We also have three new members in the
> past month, Bryan, Felipe, and dottedfish.
> - We did have an issue with the size of the animated wallpapers causing
> some issues so it won't be set as default. One idea we discussed was
> maybe trying for a partially-transparent wallpaper for F15, and doing
> the time of day via gradient switches underneath. However, the slideshow
> XML format doesn't support this. Now might be a good time to put in for
> an RFE? One thing tho is GNOME 3 is going to be default for F15, so I'm
> not sure if slideshows will be supported then.
> - Mizmo was really bad and failed at putting a formal meeting together,
> will try again next week.
> - Nicu put together a nice starter requirements document for the RPG
> widget:
> http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/design-team/2010-October/003411.html
> - We went through the document and came up with some ideas:
>  - the RPG username should be pulled from the FAS IRC nick field. It's
> user-editable in FAS - the example here was mizmo's FAS name is duffy,
> but people know her better as mizmo, and the FAS name is not editable
> but IRC nick is.
>  - Pantless avatars are okay because the base characters will be
> pandas!
>  - We're going to keep this simple to start and stick with 5-6 base
> panda variations and build out from there.
>  - We had some great outfit ideas such as a 3-piece suite monocle
> panda, panda in a pretty dress, ninja panda, panda in overalls, panda
> with a zony T-shirt, panda with wings accessory
>  - Some examples for inspiration we looked at included Sims 3,
> avatar.yahoo.com, avatar.yahoo.co.jp, the playstation network widgets
> (http://fp.profiles.us.playstation.com/playstation/psn/pid/mairin.png)
>  - Subtle animation might be cool for the characters but nothing over
> the top like this
> http://k.yimg.jp/images/avt12/anm_newcoordinate1_20101013_1f806580.gif
>  - we thought 120 x 120px like the hackergotchi would be a good size to
> start
>  - each object should be available for each object, having objects
> apply only to certain avatars will complicated the system so we should
> avoid it
> - Dave reminded us that Libre Graphics Magazine didn't get Fedora
> submissions for issue 1 but can take them for issue 2. One idea was for
> Mizmo to interview Emichan, another was for Mizmo to write something
> about teaching Girl Scouts Gimp & Inkscape!
> - We worked with Felipe (WaspStung) and dottedfish and hooked them up
> with tasks from the Design Team queue. WaspStung will be working on a
> Lekhonee logo and dottedfish will be working on a Fedora podcast logo.
