We had 4 competing design (Solar, InvinXible, Gears and Neon), nobody
backed down, it was impossible for the team to get to a consensus for a
"winner", we had to vote which lead to huge debates, animosity and
people trying to rig the system (join the team only for the vote). We
decided we want to be friends and not repeat the experience.
That looks dangerously similar to what's happening -- I mean the
increased interest in Design-Team membership within the past 48hrs. I
don't feel too good any more (I moved the motion for votes). Only that
we have an 'alien' design to deal with time time around.
<thinking aloud> I personally don't buy the wallpaper concept (stripes)
but it does go well with the Gnome3 mock-ups (which means the Gnome3
interface overhaul will be more at home with the kind of wallpapers made
by the Fedora Design Team). However, in the spirit of Open-Source and
Linux OS as a whole, its humbling to get a request to assist a major
contributor to Linux DE.
Argh ... *scratching-my-head* ... but Fedora Design team handles design
request other than those internally generated. Why didn't Gnome ask us
to do this through the usual means -- place the request on Trac and
alarm us to do our thing -- to produce a mock-up wallpaper (even link a
sample concept, the stripes). It would have been downstream -> upstream
motion as usual. That would have made this case so much easier. It
would have been a Gnome3 wallpaper ... but a Fedora Design Team work.
It adds up. This is a dilemma ... How did we get here? How do we end
this? </thinking aloud>
