Design Team FAD

August 4th, 2016 von buergermeister

Durng the weekend of 28th to 31st of July I was in Westford for the Design Team FAD, which we had now for the second time and we use mainly for organizing the work in the team. We all arrived during the week, but we are much lesser then last year, as some flights are more expensive like mine. So we are just 7 people this year.

Day one we spending most of the time with preparing for the open badges hackfest which we will held tomorrow. So we prepared some Inkscape lessons for an entry to Inkscape. The rest of the day we was spending time for organizational stuff we have to do for the work with the Design Team. We organized during the FAD 2015 the work of the Design Team new, we have since then regular meetings in IRC where we look over our ticket queue. Since we doing that, we handle all tickets very fast and our ticket queue is always in short time solved. But that creates another problem, we never have tickets for newcomers left, so we have to find a solution for that. The other problem we have with that is, that we concentrating to much on the tickets and the design for the distribution itself does not end up there, so we sometimes loosing track of it. With the meeting we have to find a solution for it as a bigger part of the Design team is now living in APAC, like Ryan Lerch and me. So its very difficult for us joining the regular meeting. We also spent time organizing the migration of our ticket system to Pagure, which will be happen soon. The migration from trac to Pagure is for the Design Team and the Badges a little bit more problematic as we need some features to do so.

Next to this organizational things we had on saturday an open house workshop, about using Inkscape and doing badges with it. Mo has an more detailed report about that part of the FAD

Looking for Records, Looking for Contributions

April 17th, 2016 von buergermeister

A few days ago, the voting for the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 24 opened. And I am impressed, how many Fedora contributors have voted so far, but I have to tell you that even I dont know the exact number yet. Nuancier is written in a way, that I cant look into the numbers before it is published. But Fedora Badges gives a little bit of an insight, but you have to see as we made that badge for the first time there was a lot of discussion about badges for voting, so it must be claimed manually and its not claimed by all who vote. But now we have already 207 badges for Fedora 24 claimed, compared to 89 for Fedora 23. So the amount of voters is already doubled and there is still nearly a week time for the votes!

Personally I am impressed and happy to see that lot of interest in this part of Fedora. For me is the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest a so called low hanging fruit, which make it very easy possible to contribute to Fedora.

The first step from consumer to contributor is by far the hardest and if this step is done, it becomes way easier to do more. I thinking since a long time to open the voting also to people who have not cla/fpca +1 membership. That would be from my perspective a necessary step, but I always have the fear for the quality. We reached a level of quality now, which is good but still our own contributors have a strong faible for blue, the rather would vote for an halfway acceptable blue wallpaper instead of an amazing shot of an bird.

We already installed a weight system for the voting, members of the Fedora Design Team have an higher weight with there vote and there is also the group of Nuancier Mentors, who have also more weight for their vote.

Originally the Nuancier Mentors was thought as a group who continuously contributed to the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest, to get them mostly out of the problem not to be allowed to vote by themselves. That´s a bit chicken-egg problem with this ¨low hanging fruit¨” you also can scare contributors them off with this.

The Nuancier Mentors group was also thought for giving them more responsibility and improve the quality of the submissions. But its not that far implemented as I would like, as Nuancier is simple a sideshow. There is still the feature for the multi-monitor wallpaper, which is not implemented yet but ready to do so. There are also some needed features, I had this time a bit of trouble to moderate the last submissions. There are four submissions this time, who could not been moderated as I have to do for all a legal research (I had to reject this time 3 for violations, people are not aware they cant submit everything). So I need a small time between the end of submission phase and voting phase, thats right now not possible as it opens automatically and I also might need some time after the election.

  • But there are other things, who could be helpful improving the Contest. First of all we have way to many wallpaper packages, people always asking how to install them. The nicest thing to do would be to deliver them by default, replace the GNOME (and also on the other DEs) extra ones. That would be the nicest thing to do. That would make the wallpaper really prominent and might animate more to contribute in higher quality.
  • As the Nuancier Mentors group was thought for increasing the quality of the wallpaper through giving hints what could be improved with an submission that requires tiny changes in what can be submitted. Its lesser possible then to submit the work of somebody else (that would decrease the amount of legal research I have to do) as changes might require the source. But Nuancier has to be change to submit versions of a submission. And that requires some work. There is the problem with acceptance/moderation to solve then. But I think that kind of moderation can be done then by the mentors. So there is a way how to do it to find and it must be implemented.
  • Open the voting for everybody with an FAS account. I think that can be done for Fedora 25, to secure the quality, we could change the weight system a bit more, so that Fedora contributors have a higher value in vote to prevent fake-accounts and cheating votes. I really would like to open it, lets see if we can do for F25.

But all requires some work and I am sure Pingou would be happy to get some help in implementing new features for Nuancier. But its open anyway, you can find the source code here.

Current Score Supplemental Wallpaper Fedora 24

März 25th, 2016 von buergermeister

Its more then a month ago, that I opened the Contest for finding the Supplemental Wallpaper for Fedora 24. Its time to give a little inside view and current score, what is going on.

What was new this time was the limitation of submission a single user can do, and so far it suffused what it was expected to do. The quality is significant higher. Also the rejects are this time, much lower, just 2 this time after we had for Fedora 23 a new record. But I have to say its again, that some would look really look better with a little bit of work on the picture. I really hope we can integrate the “mentoring process” soon into Nuancier. The mentors group already exists, and it would raise the quality of the wallpaper more. Here are my 5 favorites so far:

So far we have 99 submissions, and 97 are valid. 53 badges for contributions are handed out, but a lot of contributors have no badges account, and the most of them are fresh contributors. But there is still time for submissions, until 11th of April. So go make your contribution, if you not have done it yet!

Document Freedom Day Phnom Penh

März 24th, 2016 von buergermeister

As one of the points we had to revive the Phnom Penh Linux User Group again, was to really do activities on Software-, Hardware- and Document Freedom Day and coming to a regularly meeting, which we have now each first Tuesday in the month at the iCafe. As it is the time for Document Freedom Day (DFD) we will have at our next meeting of course, a topic that fits to it. I will be showing how easily it can be done to use Inkscape for presentation slides, to bring the people to use this instead of flash, pdf or more evil prezi.

 

The talk will happen 5th of April 2016, 8.00pm at the iCafe (next to Brother88, on 2nd floor) #196z Street 19

Supplemental Wallpaper Winners!

September 22nd, 2015 von buergermeister

We broke this time nearly all records since we doing the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest with Nuancier. We had 199 submissions, where actually 157 ended up in the pot for the elections. These came from 73 submitters, a lot of them new contributors. Unfortunately we also broke the record for rejected submissions. The most of them contained a trademarked logo, notice that includes our own also! One thing was also more negative, a lot of participants uploaded, not just 3 pictures as many more. Some of them submitted a lot and mostly iterations. That leads to a problem, the Fedora community shows a strong love for “blue”, means if somebody submitting just iterations of a blue pattern, he has a good chance. But it can be that all of his iterations are elected, instead of other better submissions with higher quality.

So, with the next contest, we have to limit to amount of submissions that can be made. Hopefully we can implement also some other features to.

But for now here are the winners:

Inkscape workshop for Linux statt Windows

September 13th, 2015 von buergermeister

Internet is this nice technology, who makes it possible to give a workshop even without being at a place. So yesterday I gave a workshop from Cambodia in Germany. But I had interesting expiriences with in Mumble did not work well, even its lighter and has good latency handling but Google hangout did work, I think Google has some priority in the network here, what is strange. But all participants from https://linux-statt-windows.org had fun in the workshop and learned something on the end.

So next weekend next event this time Software Freedom Day where I will give an talk, here in Phnom Penh.

Fedora 23 Will Have Beautiful Supplemental Wallpaper

September 5th, 2015 von buergermeister

The submission phase for the supplemental wallpaper for Fedora 23 isnt over yet. There are so far 169 submissions. But I had to reject this time already 40 because they used material of other pictures without quotation or an trademark was included. So we have 120 submissions in the pot right now.That are right now my favorites:

But there is still one week you can submit your wallpaper, so grab your camera and shoot some nice pictures ;)

Flock is coming

Juli 25th, 2015 von buergermeister

Its just a few weeks to 3rd Flock, where the Fedora birds come together. The schedule is out for a while and as you can see I have two things which I will “present”.

The first one is Design Clinic, where you can come if you need help from the Design Team, Máirín Duffy, Ryan Lerch, Marie Nordin, Meghan Richardson and me will be there to helping you with problems you have. You can come with everything, you need a poster for an event so com, you need a logo so come, you need help with UX design so come, you have any idea where we can improve from the design perspective come and speak with us.

So far we have 3 projects we want already to work on:

  • Ralph Bean asked us a while ago if we can improve the “fedmenu”, some might have noticed it already that are the little buttons down in the corner if you are logged in into a page of Fedoras infrastructure.
  • Pierre-Yves Chibon, drives since a long time an service called “This week in Fedora” and he wants an design to present it better in the web.
  • Matt Miller wants help with an presence for “Two Week Atomic”

So if you have something just come along and grab us for help! You can also write to the design team mailing list, if you are not at Flock and have a thing where we should work on.

The second thing I have is the “Wallpaper Hunt“. As you might know I am responsible for getting the supplemental wallpapers for each Fedora release. Btw. our nice little application for doing that was started on first Flock but looking back to that Flock, I received after it some submissions from Charleston, that was definitely not good and there was so nice motives in Charleston to sad we had not one wallpaper in the next release which was shot during Flock. And there was so nice motives! This Flock I want to change that. With Marie Nordin I located a nice spot where we want to go and try to shoot pictures that can show up in Fedoras next version.

So I know we have talented photographer between us, lets get together going there and try get some nice pictures on this way we can share our knowledge and equipment and I think we will have some fun to. The only chance we have to do it, is Wednesday after the talks, so come to me before I will tell you where we meet.

On Saturday as you can see in the schedule we have some time then get the pictures processed.

FOSSOGRAPHY 2015

Juli 7th, 2015 von buergermeister

I will do in November a new event about Free Software graphic tools – FOSSOGRAPHY. This event plans to bring developer and user of this software together. Its thought of a kind of showcase about the newest developments in this areas and what can be done with free software. The projects shall win this way new users as even more contributors.
But it shall be also a place where the various programmers of the different projects can meet and connect to work on stuff where the programs should be working together. But also a place where you can come and tell people about an idea you have that might get software in this area improved.

The Call for Papers as well the registration for the event is open now and closes on 30th September. We search for talks, handout sessions, workshops, hackfest from the following areas:

  • Open Source and photographics
  • Free Software tools for image manipulation and raw development
  • 3D graphics and renderer
  • Free Software for vector graphics
  • Font design with Open Source
  • Free Software tools for 2D & 3D animation
  • Video editing and production with Open Source
  • Game development and asset creation with Open Source
  • UX design in/for and with Open Source
  • Desktop publishing and print design with FreeSoftware
  • Open Source 3D printing soft- and hardware
  • Open Source Color Management
  • Aerial photography and video with Open Source
  • DIY (open source) dolly systems
  • File formats for free graphic software

The idea to this evnet, was born a long time ago as another event who looks wants the same doesnt become what it should be.
After the decision was made to do it was open the place where it should be and there was a lot of thinking if it is a good idea to go first time to Asia. Yeah there are some disadvantages, like working style of Asians or the most Europeans/Americans think flying there would be more expensive as travelling inside Europe or the the amount of FOSS contributors isnt that high on this continent. But at a certain point we as free software movement have to go to Asia to get them involved and not always saying, we dont have contributors there!

But there is something else, we have to carry the costs for the event, where is actually a positive thing doing it in Asia as that gets amazingly cheap as well we want to support speakers and projects with there travel costs. We try to collect most of this money from the community, so if you believe in the goal of the event and/or using this tools, you can help us. We made a pledgie for that purpose and an indiegogo campaign will follow. But watch we want to give you something in return!

FUDCon APAC 2015 – Summary

Juli 1st, 2015 von buergermeister

I was last week in Pune for FUDCon, so its time to write about the experiences.

Day -2

I had to start my travel 2 days before the event from airport Leipzig flying to Munich, well the travel to Leipzig and also the checkin and flight was without something to mention. Just one hour ride to Leipzig and 40 minutes flight to Munich. I had a long layover in Munich so I checked before the situation with WIFI and electricity, well Munich has free wifi and they even proudly anounced that the equipped the gate areas with power supply, well they was there but simple not working. With a little searching I found one which was working but there was nothing to sit there so I spent the time in EMEA Ambassadors meeting standing :D

Day -1

Also for that day there was no action, boarding the plane in the morning and leaving it in Mumbai in the night. The immigration process with the TVOA visa worked well, except to find the counter for them was difficult. So if you travel to India and eligible to get it, thats the easiest way.
Outside the airport Prima Yogi Loviniltra and a volunteer did already wait for me, just Ryan Lerch was missing but he joined as a few minutes later. So the fetch on the airport was well organized. The cab ride took some time but interesting conversations made that not feelable. So we arrived in the morning in Pune just enough for 3 hours sleep.

Day 0

I had not really time for a good breakfast but I needed one as I had not a dinner either, but Kushal was already standing there telling me I was to late. But I managed to grab something to eat even the waiter always removed my tools when I grabbed something. Also here the transport was well organized and the bus for bringing us to MIT was already waiting.
On the first day I joined a few sessions but I will write only something about the most important for me. We had a BoF session for the next APAC FUDCon. What I am worried about is the style which is coming up there, just finding some point why a thing not might be good instead of trying to find out how problems can be solved!

Day 1

I started the day with Jiri Eischmanns presentation about the Fedora workstation and his presence and future. I joined several other talks to, where I just want to mention the Achieving Community Goals With Fedora one from Tenzin Chokden, awesome job of Joerg Simon and Fabian Affolter and their l10n hackfest for the tibetian language, good work. Besides that I had many organizational conversations for organzing stuff in the APAC region.

Day 2

This was actually the most busy day for me as I had in the morning my own workshop about using Inkscape. Well there are some negative things, the room was not the best choice, its hard to work on a small table attached to the chair. But more worst was that the picture from projector was looped to an camera, but the camera was missing so we had to find that out first, so I lost some time for the workshop. But we still managed to draw with the participants what I wanted to achieve and they have a good foundation to use Inkscape in their work and learn it more. I already prepared a screencast, which you can find here.

Ryan switched more to a presentation style, which I only do on events to impress people what with our free software tools can be done and how easy it can be. But as I expect people on a FOSS event like FUDCon are already open to using our tools and just need some help starting to work with them and the best way to learn it is by doing.

After the lunch we had another Ambassadors BoF for APAC, time to speak more Ambassador stuff. We made during this year some progress in APAC and on FUDCon it was visible a lot of asians in a Fedora Ambassador shirts, but we still have not all equipped with them.

We also made progress in producing F21 media centralized but still there are some problems to solve as the process didnt work well, we had no central production in APAC for F22 but we talked how we shall do it in the future and think found the best solution for it. We also had time to discuss if it would possible to replace the DVD media at least partly with USB sticks. We agreed on doing a research on prices until next FAD APAC end of the year and look there if we do it or not. And yes we found an place where we want to do the next FAD – Singapore so we will work on it during the next months to organize it. So we moved again forward.

Day 3

Some went out really in the morning to spent some time in Mumbai, but I am to old for touristic pressure even I would like to have seen more from that city, I was in India for FUDCon and not for an touristic tour. So I went out of the hotel at noon and the cab brought me to the airport, where I enjoyed the sun outside and later I spent some time with Danishka Naven and Izhar Firdaus in the airport.

Day 4

This day I entered a plane in Mumbai short after the day had begun and woke up landing in Zurich. Well I found easily an AC port in this airport and free wifi was also available so I could do some work during the time I had to wait for the next flight, wich was this time just 5 hours later. After this flight I just had a short trip with the train and I arrived right in time for the Design Team meeting.

Summary

It was an interesting trip to India seeing how people live there and make new friends, meeting people I worked already with and meeting old friends. I think we moved for the Ambassadors in the APAC region and that means Fedora makes progress in the future in Asia.

  • 15th Anniversary Linuxwochen Vienna

    Mai 11th, 2015 von buergermeister

    As all the last year in May the event row called Linuxwochen makes it stop in Vienna and I represented Fedora there. This year it was an special event as the Linuxwochen could celebrate their 15th anniversary. And this years event was indeed special, normally this event is compared to others a smaller one as it is from Thursday to Saturday. But this year it was on Thursday already crowded and it looked some more Germans have found their way to Vienna. Also both of the workshop I gave in Vienna was an success and as always filled with people.
    Personally I think the exhibition area was this year a nice one to, as Axiom Apertus Beta was presented there, first that this open source camera was presented in public and also Mozilla did show an TV running Firefox (an TV that you can buy, greetings to Ubuntu).
    The social event was this year also a nice one, with an special delicious cake. So it was all in all a win to been there personally as for Fedora.

    The submission phase for Fedora 22 Supplemenal Wallpaper is now over and the voting is open. You can vote, if yu have an Fedora account cla +1 until 25th of March. Dont forget to claim the badge, the link for the claim will be showed after the voting. But nw is als time to say something to the submissions, we received this time not a lot, that might be because of the shortage of the submission phase. We got 69 submissions thats half of the last one. Unfortunately I had to deny a lot of them because persons or trademarks on them or wrong format. The quality of the submissions is this time als not that good, a lot of our good photographers did nt submit something. Personally I find it hard to find 16 amngst the submissions, tht would be worthy to gt packaged. But this are my personally favorites:

    But now go and look for yourself and vote.

    Make Fedora 22 Beautiful !

    Februar 23rd, 2015 von buergermeister

    Time is flying, Fedora 21 is there just 2 months and Fedora 22 alpha is before the door. So it is time to open the Supplemental Wallpaper Contest. We will use again Nuancier Fedoras application fr the submission and the voting. There are also this time some changes, there is now a team of mentors, who look over the submissions and make suggestions how it can be improved. The submission phase is this time much much shorter, you have only until 19th of March to make your submission.

    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.

    To get inspiration, you can always look on former submissions, that are my personal favorites from the last contest:

    The deadline until you can submit your artwork is the March 19 2015 at 23:59 UTC. The voting will open automatically after this deadline and as many said the period for the voting shall be longer it will be this time open until 25th of March

    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. So successful submission makes 2 badges ;) 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.

    Back 2 work

    Februar 11th, 2015 von buergermeister

    It’s some time now that I was in Westford for the Design Team FAD, it was great and we achieved a lot during this weekend. We came down to 17 open  tickets for the Design Team and discussed how we will work in the future.  The only thing what wasnt that nice is the flying time, I was really jetlagged after the return and additionally I fetched a nice cold which brought me down for more then a week. So I was a little bit down for nearly 3 weeks, but now I am back but I have so many mails to read and answer that it will be my work for the next 3 days.

    Next station will be the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage, where I will have together with Robert Scheck an talk. Next to that I have to arrange the Linuxwochen in Vienna, which have also started their CfP. So if somebody wants to help me on the booth…. and there is also some work to do for Fossography in November. So a lot of work waits for me.
