Re: Help with New Default Theme for FC 6 and the plan for FC7+

FEDORA CORE 7 AND BEYOND
========================

Since there really was no formal process in place to get community artwork contributions into Fedora for FC6, we're kind of doing this all last-minute. In the future, we'd like to work on having a more formal process by which people can submit concepts up until a certain date, full theme mockups up until a certain date, and then an advisory board of some sort could be in place to make a decision on which theme actually gets in.

This is all still nebulous and cloudy at this point but once we get through FC6 I hope this is something we can all work together on to ensure that community artwork will be a part of Fedora in the future!


Admittedly the (non existent) process has resulted in confusion but I didnt realise that there was a problem in getting artwork into the distribution. If have major issues in governance, it would help to highlight issues earlier in the development cycle so that we dont have to rush things in the last minute.

From FC7 onwards, the freeze for all changes including new artwork would be before the test2 releases and we would define a process for exceptions artwork people would need to follow along with the rest of the developers.

We still need to discuss the process of selecting one particular theme amoung several submissions that usually turn up. That is something the people involved here need to figure out. I dont want the board to micro manage. We are not artists unlike the people here.

If you are using the logo in the artwork, please submit it to the board for approval. The logo is part of our Fedora trademark and we need to legally protect it or risk losing it. We have been discussing using more freely licensed alternative logos among other things since the current situation is obviously not a healthy one.

Thanks
