I am sure you are all already aware, the announcement is official
yesterday when Paul delivered in in front of the FUDCon audience, the
release name for Fedora 12 was voted Constantine.
When I think about it, I had in my mind Byzantine culture (Roman emperor
Constantine the Great) and I think a graphic in the style of a Byzantine
mosaic can be an effective approach. The major trick is to leave out any
religious implications and stay only with cultural references.
Think of something like
but with some
modernist imagery and some blue.
It also can work like this
with the symbols
for our 4 foundations.
Get a better idea from those photos:
I talked about this yesterday evening (night) with Mo and Paul and today
with Samuele (FUDCon is awesome for such things) and it seems the idea
hs some potential.

Keep in mind everyone that just because the codename is "Constantine"
doesn't mean that we HAVE to include the guy in the theme somehow. We
can go off on some inspiration derived from reading about him and
whatnot and just make sure the tie in is there.
