So Martin's working on getting the wallpapers into F12 beta, and Spot is
working on getting the splashes & banners in. We missed our deadline of
9-29 by a couple of days, but I think we're in good shape now.
We still need to take care of a few things though. Not only do we have
to keep our eyes and ears open for feedback on the beta artwork to
improve in the final release, but we also have other tasks to complete
as well. Here's excerpts from the scheduled tasks John Poelstra posted
- Create Beta Website Banner: due Fri 2009-10-09
- Create Count Down Graphic: due Tue 2009-10-13
- Beta Release Public Availability Tue 2009-10-13 (would be nice to
have release party poster templates for this, but not necessary)
- Create DVD/CD label and sleeve artwork: due 2009-10-27
Does anyone see a task here they'd like to pick off? All the artwork
thus far, including sources, should be a handy resource for completing
any of these, and it is available here:

As you said i'll be putting all my creations in my fedorapeople page.
Well, in the other mail I sent to the list about extras I suggested that

But no problem, as Paul said i'll do it in F13
And welcome to the team, Tareq :)

Hi all, I'm new in this, first, my name is Hector, I'm from México.
Well, I have experience painting with oils and acrylics, and recently
I'm using Gimp, if you want to see something what I do with Gimp, here

I have repeated the design using Inkscape. I tried opening it with
Scribus and got undesirable results, so beware. I have uploaded the SVG
& SVGZ files for contributions. The low-res logos were for reference,
they will not display in the uploaded versions (linked). I don't know
how long it takes to get a vector version of the logos (in the queue).
A sample of my version (jpg) is available for reference.
Thanks for the lead on MgOpen, very cool. Open-source really delivers.
