Status of Fedora 21 Supplemental Wallpaper

Juni 22nd, 2014 von buergermeister

The submission phase for the supplemental wallpaper for Fedora 21 is now half over. Some already asked me for the status and most wanted also to see what is submitted. But we decided not to show them until after the voting, to avoid that people vote only for people they know instead of the quality of the submission.
But I think now its time to give a little bit of an overview what is the status now. So far we have 59 submissions, 3 of them had to be rejected, wrong license, one was an double and one had the wrong resolution.
The good thing is more people as last time contributed to the wallpaper, the bad thing is that I got a strong feeling some just did to get the badge. So the quality of some submissions is low. On the other hand some participated with creating wallpapers especially for the contest, so we have until yet three vector graphics or image manipulations in the contest. In generally a lot of the submissions are nice with the motif its just that a little bit work on the RAW files would help them over the top. Mostly they are over-lighted, some just in areas.
So the question is now, if we change Nuancier in a way that allows the upload of different versions of a submission, so that you can work on them to make them better if necessary.
But that is music which might be played in the future, lets take a little look whats already there. Here are 5 submissions, which are my personal favorites right now.

Just to remind you, there is still time until August 16th for submissions, so more then a month. So jump to Nuancier and make your submission

Linuxwochen Vienna day 3

Mai 12th, 2014 von buergermeister

Day 3 of Linuxwochen Vienna was for me the hardest day, I didnt spent much time on the fedora booth as I had to deliver 1 talk and 2 workshops. It started in the morning with the Fedora A-Z talk, which is always nice and gives the attendees a chance to ask a lot of questions to Fedora and they had a lot of questions. After the talk I had to hurry to get into the next room as I had to give together with Sebastian Wagner an darktable workshop. After two hours explaining darktable modules and what you can do with them, what costs a lot of time the workshop ended. I am still not 100% happy how the workshop went, first the problem with the window size I faced in Chemnitz was there again and this on three different machines with different versions, so it looks is a darktable bug and second if all modules are explained the workshop becomes more an demonstration as an workshop, so I have to work on the content a little bit more. But the around 30 attendees was still happy with the workshop and we got positive feedback.

Direct after the darktable workshop my Inkscape workshop did happen, which had not that many people as the one before but still a lot. All the attendees reached the goal I had with them:

Who wants to repeat to redo the steps we did in the workshop, I prepared an screencast (german) for it which you can find here. The rest of the day I spent on the Fedora booth but it was not a lot of time anymore, just 2 hours and then the Linuxwochen Vienna 2014 ended.

Linuxwochen Vienna day 2

Mai 10th, 2014 von buergermeister

The second day of Linuxwochen Vienna was like always better visited as the first day. As Gergely and Peter arrived also that day we had enough swag to survive the rest of the week. For me it was also the first day where I had an workshop. This time about Blender, there was only 7 people in it, but that is normal on a friday morning.

The rest of the day I spent on the booth and just visited one talk about how to get OSM maps printing ready. In the evening we went together to the Linuxwochen After Hour party and later went for to an restaurant for an Wiener Schnitzel.

Linuxwochen Vienna day 1

Mai 9th, 2014 von buergermeister

Its the time in the year, I spent some days in the wonderful city of Vienna. First day of the Linuxwochen is always the thursday andits a little bit quieter then the other days but this year there was a lot of visitors. That might be because of the program, in the schedule there was mostly talks about how you can keep your data a little bit more safe.

We had on the first day no talks or workshops in the program. For me that was very good as I had the crazy idea to come with the night train. I arrived right on time on the venue for preparing the booth. Linuxwochen printed us a nice poster and I brought the table cloth and everything I had left on swag, just to survive the first day. It was really everything gone in the evening.

Submit your wallpaper for Fedora 21!

Mai 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

It is time to open the submission phase for Fedora 21 Supplemental Wallpapers. This time not only for the voting phase but also for the submission phase, we will use our application Nuancier for it. We hope that makes submissions a lot easier. Be aware its the first time we use it so there might pop up some issues.

There are some rules of technical nature:

  • Submitted wallpapers must use a format that can be read by software available in Fedora Package Collection. Preferred image formats include SVG and PNG.
  • Master files, which may be further edited, should be maintained in non-lossy formats. Preserving vector graphics, raster layers, and channels is important for such materials.
  • Originals for landscape formats must be a minimum of 1600 pixels wide and 1200 pixels high. The larger the better. Photographic submissions should be made at the highest resolution the camera is capable of.
  • Submitted wallpapers should be provided in a 16 x 9 aspect ratio when possible.
  • No watermarks, signatures, photographer/creator names, or messages may be included in any part of the work. However if the license allows, and the photo is compelling enough, we could remove watermarks.

and some of organizational nature:

  • Submissions must not contain material that violates or infringes anothers rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright infringement. If your submissions include or derive from artwork created by other people, please make sure the license of the original work you incorporate is compatible with Fedora and that you are not violating any of the provisions of its license. Just because a work is licensed with a Creative Commons license does not mean it is free to use (make sure you provide attribution to artists that license their work with a CC Attribution clause.)
  • Submission should have the consent and approval of the author or creator
  • Submissions re thereby licensed to the public for reuse under CC-BY-SA unless specifically identified as being licensed by another approved liberal open source license. See a list of approved licenses for Fedora. Note that we can not accept NC or ND submissions.

The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the August 16 2014 at 23:59 UTC. The voting will open automatically after this deadline.

For the badges hunters, yes there will be badges for it. There will be a badge for submissions, it will be awarded after the examination of the picture if it fits the rules, which you can see above. Another one will be awarded if your submission is chosen and also for the voting process there will be one.

For further questions, you can send me a mail and don’t hesitate to ask me for assistance just write me a mail gnokii@fedoraproject.org.

Augsburger Linux-Info-Tag 2014

April 8th, 2014 von buergermeister

On 22. March there was again Augsburger Linux-Infotag, an event I normally not visit. He is to small and the travel to it is to complicated for me. But this year I did go there to represent Fedora with an booth, I was not alone Björn Esser was the event owner and Raphael Groner did also help on the booth.
As I said the event is a small one with just a few hundred visitors but this year there was at the same day open house of the university so there was more people. We brought only a few DVD and swag and the DVD was gone soon. We reached through the open house event people who not using Linux and free software and became interested.

Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2014

April 7th, 2014 von buergermeister

It’s time for another event report. The weekend from 15. and 16 March there was CLT in Chemnitz and I was there. It was now the 15th CLT and it was like all the years before but from my point of view there was lesser visitors as in the year before. But there was a long queue in the morning, people waiting for entry.

I had on saturday in the morning an workshop about using darktable and it was a mess. First I was totally jetlagged and my brain was somewhere else but not in my body where it belongs and the technical problems I had to face brought me really out of my concept. Window geometry of darktable didnt switch to the screen resolution that is no fun and the projector showed very different colors.

Everything else, was the same like all the years before, same people so not much to write about it.

Last day in Cambodia

März 10th, 2014 von buergermeister

Today is my last day in Cambodia and a exhausting but also cool time will end. The first days I was at FOSSASIA as I wrote in my blog before (day 1, 2, 3 ), Tuan and Uditha did also write about the event. For Fedora it was a very successful event, we was enabled to find 6 new contributors, for Ambassadors and translation. After the event we went together with the night bus to Siem Reap, for an very short visit to Angkor, you cannot been in Cambodia without seeing it. After it I came back to Phnom Penh, where I had 2 workshops about using Inkscape. One at Smallworld Cambodia and one at WebEssentials.asia. I found a lot of new friends and one the one side I would like to stay longer as there is still need for more such things here. But on the other side, I am happy to go home and be the next weekend at my favorite event Chemnitzer Linux-Tage.

FOSSASIA – day 3 – The hackfest

März 3rd, 2014 von buergermeister

Last day of FOSSASIA in Cambodia, the day for hands on and hackfests, today we changed the venue and went instead of Norton University to the OpenInstitute in Phnom Penh. We planned a hackfest helping them who want to join Fedora doing there first steps. On the end of the day we had done everything, from creating FAS accounts, making personal wiki pages, creating ssh key, we even did a little key signing party and 6 people have done the first steps to become Ambassador. Two of them are from Cambodia, where we had no Ambassadors before. They are also interested to make Fedora available in Khmer, the local language. It was really a nice hackfest.

We really worked the whole days on all things and explained a lot, so that our new contributors get an easy start. After the long hackfest, we went back to the hotel and managed to go all together including our new contributors to go for a nice dinner together, the last one in Phnom Penh, for the most of us. So for Fedora FOSSASIA was really an success.

FOSSASIA – day 2

März 2nd, 2014 von buergermeister

The second day of FOSSASIA 2014 in Phnom Penh was even more stressful as the first one. In the morning at 9am, I had my first session an Inkscape-Workshop which was really crowded. After that I had an talk which was not planned, but after my talks the first day there was more interest, what Fedora is. So the schedule was changed a little bit and I had in the main hall an introducion to Fedora. Besides that I gave an interview to Voice of Cambodia about Inkscape and how cool it is. The morning was really stressy. After all that more Fedora sessions in our room followed which was all sucessful.

In the evening there was another social event in a cafe, only problem for me they served only fish and seafood, but I got later an sandwich and so the day ended. I was really tired and felt asleep immediately after the arrival in the hotel.

FOSSASIA 2014 – Day 1

Februar 28th, 2014 von buergermeister

I am already 3 days in Phnom Penh now, but I was always to busy to write an post or my blog. I was a little bit tired on the first day after the 48 hours of the trip, which lead me through 4 different countries. But I had a warm welcome after the arrival on the airport where I was fetched from a volunteer of FOSSASIA who gave me a package with lot of informations and an tuk tuk was already aranged which brought me to the hotel. After an shower I managed to find Kushal and his wife and we had a late lunch together and we even had time for a small photo walk on the Riverwalk, with the kings palace and the Tonle river. But the next day, was more for recreation and finish the talks and waiting for the others to arrive. So we had all together a nice Fedora lunch at the River Crown, which has an nice view.

Today, there was the first day of three of FOSSASIA and it started not well, as there was in the morning a lot of short talks of all the suporters and each of them took more time as granted on the end there was one hour delay in the talks. Also Fedora had on this session an talk as we sponsoring the event and are btw the biggest participation on speakers at the event, we have 3 days long or own track. So Tuan did take that job and introduced Fedora to the audience. Later we had a lot of talks more, Tuan spoke about Fedora.next, Sarup showed ways how you can contribute to FOSS, Kushal showed how easy you can use Fedora cloud images and I did also 2 talks, one was an introducion to Fedora as A-Z talk and the second one was a nice follow up to Sarups talk, how you can contribute to Fedora.

Later we went to the social event, which was really nice as it was on a boat on the Tonle river, what means fresh air. After the dinner and boat tour we went back to the hotel and now I am already tired enough. Tomorrow will be another day with for me starting in the morning with an 2 hours Inkscape workshop and later I will have another Fedora related talk in our track.

where interested people can do together with us, there first steps as Fedora contributors.

I am really interested what comes out of that hackfest and how many new contributors we can win there.

I will also give an Inkscape workshop on the event, which isnt scheduled yet, so Fedora has really a big participation on FOSSASIA this year. I will stay a little bit longer in Cambodia, but not for holiday. I will give some workshops at Smallworld Cambodia and for Webessentials and I will be back right on time for Chemnitzer Linux-Tage.

I saw the future

Februar 11th, 2014 von buergermeister

Last weekend was 6th edition of DevConf.cz in Brno and I was there. How it was can be described in just one word – awesome. It was not my first time on this event and it becomes more and more to an – you have to be there. On Friday and Saturday I enjoyed only a few talks as I am lesser the technical person, it was interesting to see that QA people think now about design & usability matters. One of the most interesting things for me was Fedora.next, I was not so much worried about it that but the few fears I had are resolved now.

Besides that there was a lot of time to socialize, meet people and resolve problems, grab swag for the next Fedora events and other things. On the end I can say, I looking into an bright future for Fedora and DevConf.cz played a role in it.

Looking back

Dezember 31st, 2013 von buergermeister

It’s the time in the year where you look back what you have done in the past year. I did that some years before in my blog to, so what have I done this year. The first thing I notice for myself I visited this year not that much events as before. Past years I had mostly 13 a year or even 15, this year it was only 8. Second thing I noticed, the a lot of them are longer then only the weekend, 3 events was 4 days long and one 3 so I spent a whole working month on events. With the travel its the whole month then or better more as I spent 17 days directly with travelling for them.
I visited in March Chemnitzer Linux-Tage an event which is a home game, in April I was in Madrid for LibreGraphicsMeeting, In May there was in Vienna the Linuxwochen and in Berlin the LinuxTag, in August I was at the first Flock in Charleston and in Cologne for FrOSCon, in October I had an horrible trip to Heidelberg for german Ubucon and the last event I did was in Oberhausen the OpenRheinRuhr. At the events I had 6 talks and delivered also 8 workshops and at Flock an hackfest. What I did also this year is some open workshops on different cities about Inkscape, which take a whole weekend. In January I started with one in Essen in Linuxhotel, I had 2 in Berlin, one in Cologne and Hamburg and one at my home town. So on the end 5 weekends out of home again.
Besides that I found some time to work for Fedora I did some banners and shirts and such stuff and tangled the supplemental wallpapers again, this year 2 times. Of course I took part in the creation of the default wallpaper. I am very happy the my Flock hackfest did result in Nuancier, which we used in a early stage for the voting for F20 supplemental wallpapers. Pingou spent some time during Christmas on it, so hopefully for F21 we can use it also for the submission. So it was a (sometimes to) busy year for me.

OpenRheinRuhr 2014

November 24th, 2013 von buergermeister

Some days ago I was on OpenRheinRuhr, an event in which I participate since the begin. Last year there was unfortunately no OpenRheinRuhr as the place was taken by another exhibition. I manned together with Felix and Christian the Fedora booth and besides of that I had a talk and a workshop in the schedule.

My talk was about the status of open source animation programs, where in this year a lot of things happend. Hopefully the upwind that area has right now, tails not off to soon and will show effect. The workshop I had was this time not about Inkscape like always, it was about Blender, the time was really short so the workshop became more an demonstration. What actually turned out really nice. Both talk was workhop was well visited and a lot of questions and interesting conversations came up after them. Think I will do OpenRheinRuhr next year again.

Ubucon 2013

Oktober 15th, 2013 von buergermeister

Letztes Wochenende war also die mittlerweile 7. deutsche Ubucon und ich war als einer der nicht Ubuntu-Vertreter, wie man hier nachlesen kann, vor Ort. Mein Beitrag zum Programm der Ubucon waren zwei Workshops, einer zu Blender und einer zu Inkscape. Etwas weniger als in den vergangenen Jahren. Das Programm war durchaus auch für nicht Ubuntu-Fans interessant, jedenfalls auf Einsteigerlevel. Ich jedenfalls mußte schon wieder Kurt Pfeifles PDF-Kung Foo-Workshop verpassen, aber nächste Chance auf der OpenRheinRuhr, wo wir hoffentlich endlich mal nicht paralell im Programm sind.  Mankos gab es wie immer an der Organisation, ich hätte mir eine bessere Beschilderung gewünscht, da hätte ich mir wohl erspart eine halbe Stunde auf dem Gelände herum zu irren und ein Netzwerk, welches nur Kommunikation auf Port 80 zuläßt ist auch nich das Wahre. Jedenfalls war es ein durchaus interessantes Linux-Wochenende, die Leute die zur Ubucon fahren sind ja nicht die Fanboys, bei denen ausser Ubunu nichts anderes in Frage kommt. Vielleicht begleitet mich ja im nächsten Jahr einer meiner Fedora-Kollegen zur Ubucon 2014, die auf jeden Fall statt findet ob in Leipzig oder Berlin oder vielleicht an einem anderem Ort, das wird sich zeigen.

Last weekend I was at the german edition of Ubucon, it was not my first one. Of course it was recognizable that I am not from Ubuntu as I weared like before my Fedora Ambassador Shirt, but I was not the only one from outside of the Ubuntu world, there was also Martin Gräßlin the KWin developer, who comes from openSUSE. That we are not from the Ubuntu Community was recognized from Kristian Kißling editor of the German Linuxmagazin and so he mentioned us in his article about the event. I had some interesting conversations on the event, hopefully next year I will be not the only Fedora guy there. There is definitely place to show e.g. RPM packaging and the visitors of Ubucon are the open people of the Ubuntu community, they are willing to learn also about such things, the program was generally not very Ubuntu related more Linux and FLOSS related. So next year I think I will be again going to this event.
