Create the release slogan page
Using the prior release slogan's page as a template, create a new wiki page for the slogan of the current release, purging outdated content and updating it to reflect the working release's name and dates. The naming scheme is F32 release slogan.
Create redirects to the F32 release slogan page from commonly mistyped pages and variants on capitalization, such as:
- F32 Release Slogan
- F32 release Slogan
- Fedora 32 Release Slogan
- Fedora32 Release Slogan
- Fedora 32 release slogan
Prepopulate the release slogan page
Get a few people to help you contribute some starter sample ideas to the release slogans page to give people inspiration for getting started. The ideas don't have to be great - they just need to exist. This should only take a few minutes, and is easily done by popping on IRC (perhaps in #fedora-mktg) and asking those who are around if they have any ideas.
Announce a call for release slogan ideas
When you feel the page is ready, announce it to the Fedora community and solicit feedback. We suggest the following publication outlets.
FIXME -- is this the right list of mailing lists?
We need a slogan for the F32 release. It will be chosen one week from now on ______. A release slogan is a short call-to-action that fits the artwork theme from Design, found at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F32_release_slogan#Themes. (F31's slogan was ".")
If you are interested in suggesting ideas for the release slogan, please take a look at the Release Slogan SOP, and the criteria for selection, at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Release_slogan_SOP. The slogan must be:
- short (1-3 words)
- a call to action
It should reinforce that Fedora helps the user achieve something great. It should also reflect some of ideas and themes found in the release artwork, and, if possible, also touch upon the Four Foundations (http://https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Foundations).
Please put your slogan ideas here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F32_release_slogan#New_slogan_ideas
The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 3/2 at 20:00 UTC, which is our next Marketing meeting (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing_meetings). We'll be discussing submissions there, and then the FPL, Mo Duffy, and the Marketing team lead will take that input and select the final slogan on ______. Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns -- and let the wiki table know if you have any ideas!

- F12: Unite.
- The slogan should be positive, and reflect the idea that Fedora helps the user achieve something great.

- The four foundations
New slogan ideas
|"share and rule"||Fine||'divide and rule' with the idiology of sharing which characerize free and open source software!|
|"order the chaos"||duffy||constantine brought order to chaos; the mosaic patterns are orderly; computers are generally chaotic and Fedora can help you make sense of it|
|"Shine"||lcafiero||F11's slogan was "reign," so what's more fitting after a reign than to shine?|
|"The Verdict is out!"||gsreekantan||12 members in a jury, so ....|
|"Welcome to life"||tatica||When is a new opportunity, is always a new start|
|"Always persevering"||tatica||Is one of the meanings of "constantine" (the constant)|
|"Whoa."||mdehaan||Mandatory Keanu Reeves reference. (skipping the unneccessary and limiting "must be a command" rule, though technically it is a command if you are a horse, but not in the Keanu sense)|
|"Grok."||Mel Chua||Mandatory Heinlein reference (along the "bring order (understanding) to chaos" theme, though this is probably not enough of a mainstream reference to really work).|
|"Synthesize."||Mel Chua||Also attempting to go with the "understanding chaos" theme.|
|something-related-to-stepping-stones - what do you call the thing (not stepping) that you do on stepping stones?||Mel Chua||The rawhide wallpaper reminds me of stepping stones set through a river - a stable route where you can stand to walk to your destination in the midst of a turbulent stream, without losing any of the surprise and beauty of that stream. I'm quite taken by Mo's "bringing order to chaos" imagery and am trying to find alternative ways to phrase that.|
|"Unite."||Bill McGonigle||This works on a few levels. Most importantly, Fedora unites the great work of thousands into one fantastic whole. Historically, Constantine was the first Emperor of Rome to practice religious tolerance, allowing one Republic with many cultures (incidentally, he favored mono- rather than poly-theism, another level), and is said to have united the Roman Empire. Constantinople has been at the cross-roads of cultures throughout its history, an important center of trade and power. Thematically, the default artwork can be though to represent all the parts of Fedora, coming together in an organized fashion to make something greater. Foundationally: Features, all the many parts of Fedora unite to form a whole; Friends, everybody uniting to make something great; Freedom, people always unite to fight for their freedoms. This could also be written "From Many, One", and bring in some Virgil as a bonus, but that wouldn't fit the active stance rule.|
