Mission

  • Create high quality packages of design tools featuring graphics, web, arts and some video editings.
  • Document the available tools, including wiki documentation and comps.xml
  • Promote the Design Suite
  • Actively review each other's design-related packages to shorten the time it takes to get them approved and imported into Fedora Package Collection
  • Help each other fix bugs that have been filed against design packages
  • Alert each other about orphaned and soon-to-be orphaned design software packages so that we can prevent their removal

Design Suite

Design Suite is a Fedora Spin based on Gnome Shell showcasing the design-related tools used by Design Team in addition of audio and video editing. More information is located on Fedora Spin website.

Process

Design Software SIG has three channels for communication:

  • The mailing list design-devel@list.fedoraproject.org for tracking packaging process and design-team@lists.fedoraproject.org,
  • The current wiki page for suggesting design software, the need of reviewing packages or joining the SIG,
  • the IRC channel located on #fedora-design@irc.freenode.net for designers and #fedora-devel@irc.freenode.org for packagers.

A bugzilla tracker named FE-DESIGN is set to track incoming review packages intended for design usage. The reviewer adds inside that report inside the block field.

Packaging

A way to contribute is to package user favorite sofware. Here is the process below:

Development

This section tracks the latest upstream development packaged in individual Fedora People repository. Using them wil help exposing bug, and exploring new features without disturbing the main Fedora repositories. In addition, the resulting source RPM will teach upstream about the good practice of packaging. To use these repository for testing purpose:

  • access to these links below,
  • put the repo file in into /etc/yum.repos.d/
  • execute the update using either Software Update or input the command in terminal sudo yum update.
