Re: Art Studio Spin?

Is the desktop oriented livecd good enough.. or is there room for a
yet more focused spin
for the designer usage case? And if so, can it be done inside the
existing Fedora repository space without reaching for external bits?

So I did a bit of work around this, this weekend.

And, yeah, I think there are a lot of value-add bits like fonts and brushes and the like that would make it really awesome. Essential? Necessary? No, but... I'd be interested in making a spin that is basically a dream Fedora for me :)

* Here's some of the general planning stuff I did in general about the spin: http://mihmo.livejournal.com/45531.html

More specifically, here's the wiki page where I started writing down some plans:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ArtTeamProjects/FedoraArtStudio

What's done thus far:

* Some (quite messy) notes towards a package manifeset: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ArtTeamProjects/FedoraArtStudio/PackageManifest

* I looked for potential fonts we could include. There are LOTS. Some are pretty neat. Most are not already in Fedora so we'd have to get them packaged up: http://mihmo.livejournal.com/45152.html

* Michael and I looked through a bunch of clip art from openclipart.org and picked out some we thought might be good to include (feel free to pull stuff out you don't think is good enough or push stuff in you think is great for inclusion): http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ArtTeamProjects/FedoraArtStudio/Clipart

* I went through a ton of Gimp and Photoshop (easily converted to gbr) brushes looking for Creative Commons Attribution and Attribution Share Alike brushes. The full list of what I found thus far is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ArtTeamProjects/FedoraArtStudio/Brushes

(One worry - if a brush is sharealike, and i create an awesome piece of art with it, does that awesome piece of art have to be sharealike? If so, if we include sharealike brushes - folks using Fedora Art Studio have to know which are which so they know how to license their derivative works??? Or does a brush not count unless you make derivative brushes off of it?)

* Got a small start at finding some CC-licensed textures: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ArtTeamProjects/FedoraArtStudio/PatternsTextures

Feel free to jump in on any of this if it piques your interest!
