RE: Request for a *.fedoraproject.org subdomain



My goal is to make sure that we maintain the look and feel of f.p.o.  The last thing we want is to confuse the user with a different design.  Using a template for consistency is a great idea, and since none of us is a web designer we will make use of the Fedora Design team if they are willing to assist.

Subdomains for our various Spin offerings should follow the general
look and feel provided by the Design team.  There will be a section of
content that each Spin provider can populate, laying out information
about goals, composition, technical details, and so forth.

There'd also be a standard Fedora branded banner of some sort like
"KDE," "LXDE," and so forth.  (For a good current example, refer to
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/community .)  All that would be
contained within a general template that they can help us craft, using
Design's general look and feel.

I don't anticipate a bunch of completely different web sites, since
users would then be very confused as to whether they were still on an
official Fedora site or not.
