== Dependencies ==
+
 
+
The current list of packages for inclusion is [[Design_Suite_Planning#Included|available]]. Whereas there's also one for package we [[Design_Suite_Planning#Under_Consideration|consider]], none of them should block the release of the spin.
+
 
+
We are also working on an equivalent comps group, which is a non-blocking component, though.

Aside from this, no other dependencies are required.
+
 
+
== Scope / Testing ==
+
 
+
Generally, the spin should boot and popular applications like Gimp and Inkscape should work. The nightly builds will make testing quite easier. So far, no extraordinary changes have been included.

{{admon/note|How to help:|We're aiming for a site for this spin that looks like the ones at http://spins.fedoraproject.org - so this is going to involve (1) figuring out the content and design (use the wiki sections below) - the [[#Owner.28s.29|Spin owner(s)]] will be helpful for answering questions here, but remember that ''you are driving the creation if this webpage'' - and (2) creating the webpage itself, for which the [[Websites]] team is also likely to be helpful, though you may need to be creative in terms of finding ways to contact them. They're usually responsive on IRC and on their mailing list, though you may need to use the list to schedule specific times for people to be online if you would like to engage in real-time conversation, due to the many timezones contributors live in. The Websites team can point you towards the HTML template for spins websites so you'll have something to customize, and [[User:Mchua|Mel Chua]] is happy to teach HTML in person any evening before April 10th if it would be helpful.}}

Benefit to Fedora

This spin is insofar beneficial for Fedora itself, as it helps the Design Team by fitting its needs through selecting often used applications and including them on one spin. Additionally, it helps new users interested in design matters to join Fedora, since they'll be able to download the spin and start directly using the applications - without being required to look into the load of available packages. In a way, it fosters the design community inside Fedora.

Kickstart File

Latest ks file inside git repository

Nightly Builds

Nightly builds of the latest .ks file can be found at nightly compose website in either 32-bits (known as i686 architecture) or 64-bits (as x86_64).

Sometimes nightly builds fail due internal change. We are working on them! :)
