If you are interested in interaction design and helping Fedora out in a
design sense, I am planning to hold a Fedora interaction design hackfest
next Tuesday to work on establishing a set of personas for Fedora.
For more details check out my blog announcement:
Hope to see you there. :) For new design team contributors,
participating in this hackfest is a great opportunity to take care of
your first design task in order to get FAS design team group approval.
I know, for the European / Middle Eastern folks especially, the hours
may be hard to make, but I will be in and out of IRC that morning
preparing things to and you are most welcome to join in then and get a
head-start before the main hackfest hours.
I want to make this logo :
Can we get a vegetarian generic logo? Like a tofu guy or a vegetable?
I think that will be more inclusive. There are entire countries where
most of the people are vegetarian.
I don't be rude but :
I don't work now on this to see reject later .
I think is more
Yesterday I received this email and share information with you.

For me everything is ok! I'm very proud to see my art published in a

My name is Zoltan Hoppar, one the ambassadors. After I have participated at
Budapest FSF event, I have noticed that ambassadors couldn't give away
printed stuff for the people, if needed just few flyers. My first idea was
to have maybe more flyers, but this - I think - couldn't be enough to show
the stuff around Fedora, and also have it translated too.
About translation - as part of the HU l10n team, I say to get it done, the
best place is Transifex, where I would like to upload - and all translator
team could reach all chapters, and together with sheduling we could have
after each release an new book.
What will contain this book? (not fixed list)
- Introduction, preface from Community leader, introduction about Fedora,
short history about from the past, what happened earlier, some remembering
- Our basement 4 F's, purpose of Fedora
- Latest main release, release notes
- Newest features, some possible future features in next release (Some
Fedora's talking points, aso.)
- Respins, some respin information
- How to be a contributor, FAS registration procedure in short
- Who is behind all of this work
Teams with team info(main teams, SIG's), with team coordinators,
coordinators faces, mailing lists addresses, nicks
- Our websites, other informations
Similarly we already have an one page release note by Mairin Duffy, and I
have found an flyer about our Electronic lab - so parts I already have, just
we must put it together. Also the respin webpages are also awesome, maybe
this similarly could be a right template to this.
So, I would like to have help, or continuing support from the design team,
to build an template for this purpose by each release. The target is to be
giveable to people, and reach as many contributors as possible.
If you guys have any idea about this, don't hesitate to write to me or
So, um... the PDF of the one-page release notes isn't one page. o_O
There's way too much content. So there's one general page, then one page
for desktop users, then one page for sysadmins and developers.
Mel had the idea folks could print out the first page on the front of a
sheet, and either the desktop page or the sysadmin/devel page on the
other side, so it would be 1 page, 2-sides, and folks could pick up the
sheet based on their interests.
Anyway here is the PDF file with all 3 pages:
(Thank goodness Ryan Lerch introduced me to pdfmod, it made combining
them into one file very easy)
The individual PDF files and Inkscape SVG source are here:
(btw, I didn't use Scribus because the latest Scribus release, as I
found and was also discovered by jimmac and andreasn of GNOME in IRC
today, is a bit of a stinker :( )

After looking into previous Fedora 11 live media cover, I noticed
specification requirement is missing which can be bad for extreme low
spec hardware. Should it be included? I am starting to work on it based
on Mo version.

I think the latest banner may be here. I apologize if I got this
wrong or am pointing at the wrong one:
It looks to me like the text in that banner is probably not part of a
translatable string in an SVG. Is that correct?
Also, I wanted to say you brought up a very good point here. Schedule
items work even better when they're *actionable*. When the task is
clear, it's easier for anyone who reads the schedule to know what they
need to do. The task item you wrote above is very clear and helpful.
