Actually, I had the opportunity to think a bit about this part: I think
is a good idea to NOT customise the look of the spin. Why? Because we
show this way we care about the "normal" spins being the best we can do,
don't relegate them to a second place and focus the attention on our own
Well, that's a good reason, however the "normal" spins'
desktop spin) owners do not ask for our opinion in terms of design other
than wallpaper. Effectively if we want to polish fedora look we need to
do it in our spin first and then bug the other spin owners to implement
it as well... Basically the design spin could (among other things) serve
as a place to look for when you'd like to see a preview of fedora future
look, or maybe a better phrase would be "a preview of what the design
team would like fedora to look like".
Of course, in addition to that we can have a ton of additional themes
like to play with.
Yup, that's a good suggestion.
