I there a way to test new GIMP 2.7/2.8 in Fedora? I looked in Rawhide
repos and I still see only 2.6x versions there. Any plans to put 2.7 in
Rawhide repost for testing purposes?

Hey there Design folks...
Some of you may have seen some of marketing-team's discussion on doing
some stories about what's going on in Fedora. It has occurred to me
that it would be super cool to do a piece on what the Design team is
up to - particularly since we're really at the start of the cycle
here, and it's a great time for people to get involved and come up to
speed without it being crunch time. :)
Here's a bit of what I was thinking (subject to change - feel free to
throw your own ideas out!) -
* Look at all the different projects / deliverables Design produces
throughout the cycle - from concept to shipment of each release. How
to get involved.
* Tools! What are the tools used - perhaps even talk about Design Suite a bit.
* Discuss doing things openly - with open tools, why this is important.
* How can non-designers help? Feedback loop, etc.
I think it would be great as a four-part series (or... something to
that effect), doing interviews with 4 different contributors (ideally,
I could get four interviewers too, which would be awesome). It could
be some great press-kit type stuff particularly for Design Suite, as
well as hopefully assisting your team in picking up a few new
contributors, and explaining to others what your process is. (Or even,
"Why it's a much better time NOW to make requests, than 2 weeks before
As to where it winds up - there are a few options. Other than being a
blog series on planet - we could also work with red hat to get it on
their press blog, which gets syndicated in some places where planet
doesn't; we could turn it into a nice-looking document for press kit,
etc., rather than being just "on the wiki" and "in a blog" which
aren't as eye-candy. (Oh, the irony - I say we could, and I'd probably
be filing the request with design to make the design interview / story
look better. haha!) We could even look into maybe doing a magazine
piece.... or print + video....
Anyway - thoughts? I can file a ticket if necessary - although most of
the "ticket" here is on marketing, rather than design :)
I'd be happy to come to the design meeting this week and talk more
about it, solicit some interviewees, etc. Shall I put it on the
In the nearby future I will need to use some documents to pass on
information in alternative formats, namely PDF to support some contents
I will share on the wiki.
This came up as I was organizing my notes from the last 4 years of
school and eventually found many contents I would like to share with
Fedora and in general with the free software community.
Since my main goal is to make them available for Fedora, I've created a
small OpenOffice.org Write Template (which does require
I haven't placed it online, so if anyone around wants to share some
opinions in order to improve it and make it more consistent with Fedora
branding, please feel free to do such.
There's the warning on the subject, it's a youtube video.
I do not know who made it, I just felt like sharing which I believe to
be a very cool video about Fedora 13.
I understand we aim for a 'technological' audience, though the message
on that video is powerful enough for any audience...
