All right - it's freeze day, and I *believe* we're good to ship. Fresh
eyeballs welcome; I've been staring at these pages way too long.
I've also added these (and tweaked the content on) the talking points,
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Talking_Points#Spins, which are
now done and ready to ship to Ambassadors (Marketing team, take note!)
I've checked each page for content, banner, and at least a main
screenshot on the front page. The final changes (screenshots for soas
and design) are syncing now but should be up in an hour or so. The
screenshot (actually an action shot) for design has slightly offset text
when you click the image to enlarge it, but it's still legible (and I
couldn't figure out how to fix it), so... all right.
I talked with Sijis in #fedora-websites tonight and he explained that
he'll filter content automagically on release day so the correct spins
(with their smaller banners) will show up on the main spins.fp.o page,
and that download links are similarly automagically created then.
Thank you to Sijis for his patient help in all things related to the
website build system, Joerg for making the Security spin site totally
shine, Peter for Moblin spin content corrections, Sebastian for
screenshots and template change-merging ninjahood, Mo for design advice
and the Design spin action shot, Melanie (first time Fedora/Design
contributor) for creating all the banners that we needed at the last
moment, the Allegheny crew for being game and helping us discover our
need for http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Spin_webpage_creation_SOP (which,
btw, could use some help now that we know the answer to "how do you make
a spin page?" is "it takes too long"), Ian for copyediting and trademark
reminders, and... well, if I've forgotten anyone, please holler. :)
I'm a student at Allegheny College helping with the Fedora project, and I'm
wondering what the next step is now that I've completed designs for Ticket
#130- Fedora Project in Africa Logo.
I made them using GIMP and you can view them under "attachments" at
So...does anyone have comments or suggestions? Or is the ticket done?
I'm sorry if I'm spamming the mailing list, I'm just not sure what the next
step is here.
Thanks so much!
Hi all and Sparks!
Making sparks' hackergotchi  made me think on the current standard
within planet fedora on hackegotchis..
The current suggestion is 80x80 pixels png pic. But many times this
results to not nice pictures and sharpening them does not help a lot.
Considering that most people nowadays use big resolutions on their
screens I am proposing to change that 80x80 to 100x100 or even better
As a matter of fact I made one such pic  (enhancing also the fedora
logo :) ). If this change is made then we could probably use the new
hackergotchis in our wiki user pages as a global policy and in the
upcoming community portal :)

Nothing right now, really - I mostly included the spin owners for the
specific pages we were working on so that you folks would be in the
loop. Sorry for the confusion.
I do agree we need a clearer workflow/division-of-responsibilities for
spin pages, though. There was more confusion this time than there
probably needs to be. There are some notes in
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Spin_webpage_creation_SOP that could be
cleaned up and improved, and perhaps documentation of a workflow could
go there as well.
Students from Allegheny Activism And Fedora will be having an
end-of-semester (and early F13 celebration) party on May 4, 2010 from
11-noon EST. They'd like to invite the Fedora community to join them -
virtually! We'll be hanging out in #allegheny - feel free to ping me
(mchua) with any questions on the day of.
If you're around, would like a ping, and generally want to hang out with
the crew, list your availability for Skype, IRC, or both, and we will
ping you on the day of the party. (Yes, we know Skype is non-Free... if
you have a better alternative, we'd love to hear it, but we really need
a simple-to-set-up (for the professors) and fairly reliable video link.)
More details and sign-up:
Hope to see y'all there!

WHY DON'T I FEEL CONFORTABLE WITH THAT IMAGE? Looks like the flames from
the rocket don't fit in! Something close to the trails in the
F13-Wallpaper would have been more befitting.
