I'm going to start off with stuff that's really more presentation, but then hopefully move into more important areas (like bugs.) Here are some of my initial ideas: 1. I think it would be neat if we created our own KDE splash screen. I think it would seperate us from the KDE spin upon first boot. I think it's good for users to be able to instantly recognize that they're booting into Fedora Jam, and not having any chance that they might be booting into something else. I'm confortable heading over to the KDE channel and asking for advice on how to do this to get it rolling.You can also request help from the Fedora Design Team for doing that splash: https://fedorahosted.org/design-team/ They also may know how to handle the inclusion in to KDE.Karsten, I'm pleased to say Jorn has already got the design team on board!
I think "having the design team on board" is a exaggerating a little. Apart from the one banner, I haven't really heard that much from them since. I'm going to jump on their IRC channel and see what I can find when I come home on Monday, and I'll also ask specifically about the splash screen (i misunderstood that one at first, my bad ). Anything anyone can do to help with artowork/themeing are very welcome.
Check out the banner here for a taste of things to come: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/File:Spins-banner_jam.png+1 to your other fluff, btw. I think it's the sort of "remove the masking tape" that makes users feel more comfortable, especially people who might be new to Linux or Fedora.Here's where it we could really use some help in the lead up to the spin. I'd imagine any theme we come up with will need to be packaged for inclusion - perhaps those who know their way around desktop customization/themeing could make some suggestions and do some research in this area ? The kxStudio team springs to mind again - its seems like they've headed down his path already . There you can find a packaged theme which could serve as a template - I'm not suggesting we use it at all. As for imagery, I'm a fan of sexy gear shots (no trademarks of course). Apologize for the grainy/reflective picture, but here's a frame print from a local photographer hanging in my office/studio which I'm really fond of . Not saying anything here but perhaps the visually creative of us here could do something arty with the equipment in their studios that the deign team could use.
