Re: artTeam Home Page Mockup



Hey folks,

 view this as a starting point.

So I took a stab at refactoring this page a little bit (hope it's okay
John) and adding some of things we've been discussing as far as goals,
short-term projects, and long-term projects:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JohnBaer/SandBox

Here's some points of discussion I'd like to bring up about it:

1) Overall does this seem reasonable as a replacement for the existing
art page? Is there anything we're forgetting?

2) An intentional omission here is any reference to the default artwork.
Does anyone not agree with this?

3) What do you folks think about the goals section of the page? Does anyone disagree about these being the general goals we'd like to work towards? Do the criteria for success seem reasonable? I'll quote this section verbatim below for easier dicussion:

A# Serve as a design firm for the Fedora community, creating artwork
 and designs to for the Fedora community on request

* How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we advertise this service properly to the Fedora commnunity, successfully get a stream of requests (let's say at least 5 requests per month for a start), and if we can fulfill at least 5 requests per month to the satisfaction of the person requesting them, we can say we have successfully met this goal.

B# Provide resources (tutorials, art assets, advice) and encouragement for the use of the FOSS creative tools available in Fedora, under open licenses to demonstrate the importance of the application of FOSS ideas to creative content;

* How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we can provide the community with at least 1 major resource (tutorial, article, art asset, scheduled lesson event, scheduled outreach event (such as a contest to promote FOSS art tools) under an open license, then we can
 say we have successfully met this goal.

C# Make it easy for 'creative contributors' to contribute to the Fedora project.

* How can we measurably achieve this goal? If we can attract at least
one contributor every 3 months (for example, at least every three months someone new to the artTeam completes a request in the service
 request pages below), then we could probably say we have
successfully met this goal.

If we are okay with discussion points #1 and #3 here, I think we're okay to go ahead and replace the current artwork page with this one.

I don't think discussion point #2 necessarily has to be resolved before we switch over.
