== 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 ==
+
[http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git;a=blob_plain;f=fedora-live-design-suite.ks;hb=master Latest ks file inside git repository]
+
 
+
== Nightly Builds ==
+
Nightly builds of the [http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git;a=blob_plain;f=fedora-livecd-design-suite.ks;hb=master latest .ks file] can be found at [http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ nightly compose] website in either [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4912327 32-bits (known as i686 architecture)] or [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4912328 64-bits (as x86_64)].  
+
 
+
Sometimes nightly builds fail due internal change. We are working on them! :)
+
 
+
== ISO Name / FS Label ==
+
* fedora-19-Live-design-suite
+
 
+
== 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#Wishtlist_of_packages|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.
+
 
+
== Spins Page ==
+
Design Suite website is located at http://spins.fedoraproject.org/design/

+
=== Spin description ===
+

+
 
+
