Be in mind Montserrat and Roboto Slab are already in repository. If Molot and Grand Hotel fonts are missing, I will submit a packaging review and include them in Design Suite group.

Subject: [Design-team] Fedora Magazine images
Just a heads up that there are now a few tickets open in the fedora-magazine-images pagure repo that are open for folks if they want to have a go at one of the upcoming featured images for Fedora Magazine.
The README in the repo has an outline of the format that we need the images in, so feel free to jump in and have a go at one or two :)
Back in Westford at FAD we had a short discussion about how, to move on
with future designs for Fedora itself. We stuck since the removal of the
code names and struggle to come up with something in time.
We had yesterday, already the first Alpha Release Readiness meeting and we
have no idea about the wallpaper yet.That is dangerous as we rely for a lot
of graphics on this design.
At the FAD we came up with the idea, to use a system just internally for us
using inventors from A-Z. So we start this time with A
There is a list in wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_inventors
which is unfortunately shorter then the german one
For this time, I will make three suggestions
Archimedes, gives as a lot to play with Symetrie of Patterns, look into
tiled clones in Inkscape, archimedical spiral, circles and so on
Edwin Howard Armstrong (FM Radio), we could play with frequency curves
al-Battani (astronomical guides, calculation of the sun year, sinus rate)
gives us some things like astronomy, starts, calendar and similar to play
For this time, I just made a small google form to find out where to go:
For the future we might change that a bit and start searching end of the
actual release looking for the next one.
We have next thursday next meeting for the team, I suggest everybody makes
his choice until then and we could start coming up with ideas during the
meeting or we shorten it up and make again an hackfest in IRC

I understand you very well.
Yes! I think the last meeting has set most of the tickets to the
fedora design team members.
Any meeting changes can also put on fedora design list if I don't online.
Most of the members follow the the rules fedora design and give some
help is not wrong.
Is one ticket has a legal issue with python logo and this will need to
fix by the design team - I don't remember the ticket, also any problem
can be put on table.
If you have some concern then you can loot to this ticket ( see:
https://fedorahosted.org/design-team/ticket/421 where for example is
one reference to: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines
also some changes.
Yes. Summary of meeting can help us. - "the goal of understanding the
team's process for working on tasks."
You told me : "It creates confusion about who has taken the assignment."
Have you ? Do you see my ticket and what I need to do ? Can you help me?
Any problem with my work can be solved by sending a mail to me and duffy.
Thank you for replay.

Long time Fedora user (Began with Red Hat at '01) and this is my first time collaborating on an Open Source Project.
If you want to know more, I already told about me on the Marketing Team:
Speaking for the Design Team:
I am a Filmmaker/Photographer who uses only FOSS software at all stages of production.
GIMP, Inkscape, Kdenlive, Krita, Darktable, Scribus... I love them and use them all the time for home and work.
I would love to help with Graphics and Videos, the Fedora community is great and giving back is exciting!
The basic first steps is checking tickets and doing them right? Then later after a few, join the discussions from the team?
I read the team wiki and it's really good explaining that, but just to make sure.
I just want to say I first heard about the team with Máirín Duffy blog, I think in 2008-09, I was always amazed with the work she could do with Fedora and only FOSS software and this inspired me a lot, I even started using more Inkscape. So thanks Máirín! You are awesome.
It's really cool to now have the possibility to do the same to other people, working with you all.
So that's it, have a good day !
I am teacher of
Mathematics and Computing, and designer Interested in share ideas, and contribute to the Fedora project. I'm currently working in a school named "Saturnino Huillca", it is in Huancarani town in
Cusco, Peru.I am working with Fedora workstation making layouts, banners, posters and magazine for a long time.
I want to join to desing team for get more experience, friend and help to the project with my work in this team.
Rigoberto Condori Chañi.
I can't make this meeting due to a prior commitment, and it'll be hard for Sirko bc it's 1 AM his time. Can anybody make this meeting? Basically you just speak up and give our status.

I created the submission/election for Fedora 25 Supplemental Wallpapers
Submission will open on 1st of September and will be open until 10th of
Voting phase will this time even a bit longer, I had the impression that we
had more votes as we had a longer phase for F24. It will open on 11th of
October and will be open until 23rd of October.
That gives time from 24th October to 2nd of November to package them.
