Re: Thinking ahead: some FC7 ideas



Let's try that one again :-)

Right. I was thinking to gather desktop environments artists (including
Enlightement) so they can tune the theme for their favorite DE (KDE,
xfce, well all DE available in Extras repository).

I think the early part of the development cycle could be bugfixing or
something of the sort, especially in the KDE case here, to get things
started. I don't know how many FC users on this list are of the K
persuasion but it might help if after each name on the contributors
page would be their choice of desktop in brackets. This could, as Luya
suggested, form a mini group with users that can look at KDE issues
rather than concentrating on GNOME ones. I'm one of them, btw.

Things like the KDE Bluecurve colour scheme bug in redhat-artwork, for
example, ( http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=115836
) could be sorted quite quickly, it took me around an hour to simply
select the colours from GNOME and convert them into the KDE ones,
albeit a little adjustment was needed but the overall effect was
there. I feel it's little things that need to make KDE match up with
GNOME that will make it become closer to seamless consistancy. If
other KDE users will agree, we should set up a wiki page which can act
as a buglist for these things along with new ideas - a sort of K-ToDo
list. If anyone uses other desktops that come with Fedora (I don't
know of them) then it would make it easier to follow.

AFAIK, FC7 has the target to "unleash KDE"
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/UnleashKDE) so maybe we need some input
from those people. Sorry, I don't know anything else about KDE.

As for "Unleash KDE", I understand to be a early-stage organisation
project where KDE and it's packages will be moved into Extras. This
will allow developers and packagers etc. to  bring the general quality
of both to a higher level as it will have it's own base to work with.
It seems a little behind-the-scenes for strict artists to deal with
but if, of course, anyone wants to help I'm sure the appropriate
people wouldn't say no!
