Here’s some labels for you to print out to get ready for F8’s release 🙂 DVD x86: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  DVD x86_64: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  DVD ppc: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  Live CD x86: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  Live CD x86_64: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  Live Cd ppc: [ Inkscape SVG ] [ glabels file ] [ PNG ]  The werewolf design is by Nicu! EDIT: Since the SVGs above are not ideal for printing as-is, I’ve made PNGs available too that are the exact size needed. I tested some of them by printing them out from the GIMP and they seemed to print out the right size… but do let me know if you have problems printing these new PNGs out let me know! And if you’re having issues with the glabels file let me know too.
Just a quick update on where the blingy spins.fpo is at right now – it’s doubtful it will be ready in time for f8’s release but we’re still making some progress. much much more detail behind the link. and now, a word from our sponsors: we need your photos for the spins.fpo site! please please please, if you have photos of yourself that could be used to represent any of the following spins that you are willing to license under creative commons BY-SA 3.0, please please please email firstname.lastname@example.org! we would LOVE to use pictures of real Fedora users for the graphics on the spins.fpo site (see the mockup with placeholder photos – this is where they would be used). electronics lab – got a pic of yourself holding circuit boards and/or a soldering iron? or, um, other electronics-y things? we need you! KDE spin – are you a big-time KDE user? got a photo of yourself wearing a KDE tshirt or doing some other activity that visually represents KDE enjoyment? (Cleeee! I know you must have some!!) send it in! Developer spin – are you a Fedora developer? got a photo of yourself from say a FUDcon or other …
Just an idea, using a cool Inkscape/SVG trick AndyFitz taught at LGM last May 🙂 — update: wrote some python to do the updating, just not sure how to proceed now.
two helpful git links from two of my homies, thanks guys, these will help as i start using git more: http://jbowes.dangerouslyinc.com/2006/12/19/my-gitconfig/ http://dgoodwin.dangerouslyinc.com/life-git
Don’t understand Japanese but want to get a rough translation? Jim Breen’s WWWJDIC is the best place to do this. Copy and paste the Japanese text into his translation tool (translate words in Japanese text). I usually use babelfish for translations but I know they don’t do Japanese; Jim Breen’s site is one of those things you know about if you’re learning Japanese so I thought I’d share.
Lennart、 英語で書かなかったブログを書いてもいいだろうと思います。読めなくてもいいですね。 (I think it should be okay to write posts that aren’t in English.You don’t have to read them.)
Okay, let’s finish up and get our official FUDcon logo! Here’s what I think are the top 5 FUDcon logos that folks have submitted based on some of the feedback we’ve gotten on-list, on irc, and in my last blog post: This includes submissions from Francesco Fantoni (modified), Nicu Buculei, and some of my own mockups with some modifications: you’ll note all the speech bubbles in these are of equal size, to represent equal voices. So based on this set cast your final ‘vote’ – you can do so in the comments to this post or on fedora-art-list or fedora-marketing-list. Update: Modified 1 slightly: modified logo 1
I came up with a sketch to kind of explain what a spin is and decided to make it nice in Inkscape (still not quite finished yet but close): So here it is in the spins.fedoraproject.org front page mockup: Also here’s what it will look like if you click “get it now!” for one of the spins: (maybe the graphic in the upper right is too much?) Any feedback, suggestions, assistance, etc welcomed. 🙂
We are looking to design a nice site for spins.fedoraproject.org for people to learn about spins, find all the various official spins that are available, and download said spins via torrent links. I came up with a mockup with lame placeholder stock art and was wondering – Would anyone be willing to be the face of a Fedora spin? If we held a contest or something for people to send in photos of themselves representing one of the official Fedora spins, would anyone be interested in entering? Or would that be a cracktastic idea? …Discuss!
