Introduction

The Design Suite is a project in progress to make a Remix (eventually a Spin) targeted towards professional designers, specifically the Fedora Design Team.

Goals

Under discussion - please discuss/edit! First round of targets comes from Martin Sourada.

  • target 1: showcase of design team work (perhaps customise the looks of the spin, add more wallpapers, include echo icons?)
  • target 2: typesetting -- fonts, inkscape, TeX, color profiles
  • target 3: general art/design work -- gimp, inkscape, color profiles, brushes, perhaps our echo-artist helper scripts...
  • target 4: video editing -- something for screencasting, something to grab raw video from video camera, pitivi or kino or something like that for cutting, perhaps an app for sound editing/recording, include dirac/schrodinger codec (I think theora, vorbis, flac, etc. are already in), perhaps some app (subtitleeditor, etc) for subtitling
  • target 5: desktop publishing -- OpenOffice.org + templates, scribus

Download

The latest image is available at http://www.wuala.com/sdziallas/fedora. (This is a very temporary hosting solution.) This is a work in progress - although it has worked in a VM, it is not finished and may break.

How to contribute

Current tasks

  • #Download the current version and test it (at this point, you may want to do so in a VM (virtual machine)). Send feedback to the design-team mailing list.
  • Help us fill in our list of #Packages - what would you like to see on a Design Studio Spin and why?

Upcoming milestones

The list below is taken directly from the Fedora 13 schedule - milestones specific to this project should be added in.

  • 2010-02-09 - Fedora 13 is branched from Rawhide
  • 2010-03-02 - Alpha public availability
  • 2010-04-06 - Beta public availability
  • 2010-04-28 - Bug Complete (No More Changes)
  • 2010-05-11 - Fedora 13 GA release

Design concepts

This section needs to be filled out.

What are the design concepts we've agreed on for this? Possible examples include:

  • select 'best of breed' apps vs "include as much as possible"
  • restrict to graphics vs also go for audio/video
  • include data vs not including data

Technical requirements

  • Based on: Fedora 13
  • Size: CD size? 2GB USB sticks?

Packages

To suggest a package we should include, add it to the #Under consideration table.

Questions

  • What do we do with brushes?
  • Will we get our own spin design?
  • Which gimp plugins do we include?
  • What about a comps group for the spin?
  • What makes it into a bookmarks package?
  • Will we get great inkscape tutorials packaged [1]?

Included

These are packages that have been chosen for inclusion in this release. They may still need packaging help.
