Hi all,

So the plan we were discussing at FUDCon was, as I understand it, something like this:

- we'll try to create something during a hackfest (of which the results are on that wiki page)
- it will be based on the GNOME striped wallpaper, but with our own touch added to it
- if we can create something we think looks good, we'll propose it to the GNOME designers, so they can tell us if they agree or not with using it in F15
- if they don't agree to that, we'll propose it to the Board to get a decision on what to do

At least, that's my view on it. Seems to me that's a way to get a reasonable compromise where both the GNOME and Fedora Design teams can provide input. If I got something wrong, please correct me.

Anyway, to answer Martin's question... The deadline for the Alpha wallpaper was yesterday and the package deadline is next week. So we should probably choose one and package it, or (if none are satisfactory) refrain from doing so and simply have the old wallpaper for Alpha (which obviously has the downside of not getting feedback).
