Goal: Create free sound themes for fedora, using only FOSS software available from the Fedora repositories.

The Need for Sound:

When we hear our door bell ring, we instantly decide on steps to take to answer it. Some may make a quick fix of their disorganized spaces to impress the guest, while that may serve as a wake-up alert for others distracted by a snooze. Some may opt to ignore it altogether. The fact is, sound helps us make decisions.

The Status:

In xxx, nnn worked extensively to integrate this concept into Linux computing.

The Way Forward:

  1. Hold meetings at #fedora-sound IRC channel at irc.freenode.net to discuss issues concerning sound theme development. Presently, a date and time for the first meeting is not decided. You can help schedule this meeting by telling us when you can attend. Visit xxxx and fill out your free periods
  2. Nominate, and choose Sound theme Names. This should act as a guide for creating samples. For example, If a theme is titled 'Air', those creating event sounds for it will be better inspired on what tones to use and possibly create new tones where a suitable one doesn't exist. The naming will also serve as a guide to grouping existing samples into related themes. Hence, some samples in a theme called 'Nature' may be used in some events in the theme called 'Air'. After all, air is part of nature. This is going to be fun.
  3. Collaborate with Musicians and the guys at #fedora-audio (see also audio_creation). Those who are prolific with Open-source Music and Sound/Studio software are highly welcome. It will be more honouring for the Fedora and Linux community if our objectives are executed with free software only (no propriety tools and plug-ins please). The file entries will be either in .ogg or .flac format
  4. Test the entries, choose best ones, assemble theme and package it for fedora. We already have excited hands waiting to do this. You can join them too
