Just some notes
@zoltan we definitely need no new wallpaper package, we have to many
different packages already
@matt there is no problem, you just need to know the package name you can
install older ones still in newer releases.
at both what Ryan has reached with the WG is already a huge step forward.
We had several attempts to make our supplemental wallpaper better visible.
Currently they are not shown in the workingstation by default its the old
ones from GNOME which is always shown there. You might also think that we
not just deliver GNOME as other DE as well so you have a lot of people
sitting on the table when you want to reach a change.
So what we not need are new ideas like add older default wallpaper, what
we need is a consens with all the DE people not thinking to much as KDE,
XFCE or whatever environment as more thinking, whats the best for Fedora.
The optimum would be that each release the package is shown in the
wallpaper settings but get the GNOME people agree to that is the hard part,
so Ryans achievement is already a step forward in the right direction. So I
am happy with it.
The question is more how we select now the 15, just take the best 3 of
last 5 releases or make a new election? To make an election and get it
packaged so we can have that for F26, its just a short time. So working on
that and not come up with new ideas is more helpful
IMHO, the best way would be for the members of the design team to pick the
set. This way we can choose the highest quality images, as well as ensuring
we have a good range of image types, and colors. We don't want to have all
mountain vistas, or ship a set were all the images are primarily the same

IMHO, these wallpapers are tied to the branding of each individual
I would be worried about including these as the standard wallpapers on a
install. The supplemental wallpapers don't really have the same connection
an individual release, and since we have a large back catalog of approved,
licenced images, this seemed like a good place to base our search on.
One thing to investigate here, however, is should we look into better ways
the wallpapers packaged in Fedora to the user? Currently, these wallpapers
are not shown
in Software, and the only way to get them is to know the correct package
name / fedora release
name to install, and use DNF. They aren't really "software", so not sure
if they fit in the Software
app, although we do have Fonts in there, but the experience provided there
for fonts can feel a bit clunky at times too.
