Fedora Design Suite

Summary

The Design Suite is a Spin targeted towards professional designers, specifically the Fedora Design Team.

Owner(s)

Planning happens on our subpage. See also the talk page.

Detailed Description

Have you ever wanted to use the tools the Fedora Design Team is using? Or are you probably even looking forward to getting involved in Fedora as a designer? This is your chance.

The Fedora Design Suite includes well-selected applications, fitting a variety of use cases. Whether you decide to work on publishing documents, creating images and pictures or even 3D content, the Design Suite has a fitting tool.

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

ISO Name / FS Label

  • fedora-{%version}-{%arch}-design-suite

Dependencies

The current list of packages for inclusion is available. Whereas there's also one for package we 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.
