I'm not a expert in this area, but I'd like to contribute... I don't
know what tools are necessary and how to do a icon. I'll need your
help. Is there some material , a tutorial, that i can study?

Hello all, I am Ryan Zygar.
I am a linux hobbyist who has been using linux for since 99. I started
with Caldera as my first distro and made the transition to Redhat at 5.2
Currently I am know deploying linux as my primary desktop with an XP
share the other side.
I remember along time ago making a post to Garrett Lesage's website
about the need for someone creative, as himself, to join up with the
Redhat Team and make cool backgrounds or something to contribute to that
cause. At the time all that I could find was Debian related backgrounds
and support. For a short stint I actually used Debian on a box for
awhile. So I was really excited when Garrett started work at Redhat.
Maybe I contributed :-)
I work in Land Development/Construction Industry and use Linux as my
primary desktop for all the work that I have day in day out. I can only
offer usability input, and some photography.
I have some creative desktop screenshots here:
You wil see a lot of your backgrounds also!
In IRC usually I go by hendershot.
Hello all, I am Kreg Steppe. It all started with my Commodore 64, (fast
forward) now I have been in the computer arena for 17years. (Has it been
that short?) If there is a job in this industry, I have probably done it
at some point in time. I currently work as a Web Developer (Dream Job)
where I code with PHP, Python, some perl constantly learning something
about CSS, and are also trying to pick up PyGTK. I also consider myself
an amature, amature cartoonist.
I have been using linux since RH 5.2, which led to me eventually getting
my RHCE. I also have some certs from another large software firm as well.
With some inspiration from that 'Bluecurve guy', Garrett, I have been
taking up Digital photography.
I do enjoy working on icons, and wallpapers trying to improve the look
and feel of my favorite os, So I offer my meager Gimping skills.
I am almost embarrassed to post this but here is a sample of some stuff
I did and posted on kde-look.org last year.
I also have a Blog that I post to from time to time.
P.S. I also will give props to the RH desktop team...leading up to
Fedora all previous Redhat Releases have gotten progressively better.
Fedora is no exception. Here's to a great job.
I've noticed several people sending in introductions to the
fedora-devel-list, and no one has said it was a bad idea, so here
My name is Trae McCombs, I used to go by "OctobrX" in the olden days. I
had a hand somewhat in the Linux community development by building the
original themes.org website(with much help from a great community of
volunteers I might add). I was later on hired by VA to build Linux.com,
and we built a really great community website that had a team of
developers building, adding, and generating content.
At any rate, I'm very pleased to see that one of my pictures,
frosty_pipes.jpg was selected to be in the desktop-backgrounds-extra
package. I want to continue to see the Fedora desktop grow into
something that we can all(and we already should be) be very proud of.
I would also like to give big kudos to Garrett and all of the Redhat
Desktop team for doing some EXTREMELY nice work so far. They have,
for the most part, cured me of searching around endlessly for different
desktop setups. I'll send another email outlining some of my gripes,
small as they are, with how things can be done to improve FC1+.
I look forward to working with you all and helping out as I can.
