Well time for me to answer this. There are two reasons why there isnt
a Supplemental Wallpaper for F27. First Mo already mentioned, I did
live for several months just with net from the phone. So actually for
the F26 Supplemental Wallpaper I save the traffic of one week to use
it just for the download of the submissions for the legal tests. So
on the end half the months traffic just for it. And I could not
afford to top up more for it.
Well, my net problems are right now solved as I have a landline,
which is stable to use.
I am glad that situation has been resolved.
Its not funny for me to read in some tickets comments from people,
doing this job is just hitting a button. Its not, its heavily time
consuming. I spent each release around 400 working hours for it. Most
of the time is spent with the legal checks, which has to be done
manually and that means down- and upload the submissions, oh yeah the
engines like tineye have an API but unfortuantely no such service is
free of charge. So you have to do it manually. Same is for the
awarding of the badges, except the voting one, they are done
manually. So more work.
So looking back to the what did happen around the wallpaper of F26
and accusations made by a person not just here in the design team as
well in public meetings which did lead to a council ticket where I
was insulted again as the person was not enforced to give an excuse
for his accusations as more I was punished by advised to stay away
from IRC for a while. So with other words, they council did tell me
that way his accusations are right.
With such insultations I did feel not very motivated to run the
wallpaper for F27 again, especially the cycle was very short, have a
I am sorry that this happened.
And it looks, it will be standard for the future to have shorter
cycles, that might be fine on the "technical" side but for things
like this its contra-productive. Currently I thinking on a way how to
do it in a different way, so that we still can have it. My current
idea is to run it just yearly for several releases, but there will be
some changes for Nuancier needed again.
I always enjoyed the supplemental wallpapers and appreciate your
efforts. Let me know what I can do to assist you.
