My name is Charles-Antoine Couret and I am French. I joined Fedora since
his 3rd version. And I must acknowledge to re-examine screenshots today
preceding versions give me nostalgia, to re-examine the first step under
GNU/Linux what is moving. And I only doubt being. It is for that that
with some people one had the idea of assembled this project, to
safeguard the visual identity of Fedora. Who is amongst other things an
inheritance important for els old but also the new ones who discovers
Fedora, a certain identity is reflected by this inheritance.
You do a formidable work of version in version with extraordinary
topics. Only, one cannot replace the emotion which the old topics nor
the history gets. It is thus for that that one wants to safeguard all
the visual identity of Fedora of each version, the wallpapers while
passing by GRUB and to the loading of Fedora and even Anaconda. And in
more one wants to provide the possibility of employing them out the box
in the future versions of Fedora without making several handling it to
have complete. Some will say that there exists bluecurve theme for
example in YUM what is true. Only it is incomplete, it misses for
example the wallpaper. But also one arrives at an obvious conclusion,
current technology does not allow to easily change the image of GRUB or
of the loading of Fedora even Anaconda, one would like to benefit from
it to create - so possible the tools necessary making the unit possible.
Let us not forget that Fedora wants to be with the point of technology,
and the strong advantage of GNU/Linux it is personalization until the
end, these tools would make it possible to prove these truths. I am
unaware of if I made well propose here, but I make Al suggestion of it,
in the worst case I would see on another mailing-list for this part.
This project in the long term would have - in my opinion to be
integrated by defect in the higher versions for the reasons stated
higher. One could then occupy oneself of the integration of these topics
which for example in KDE is still badly made (change in the icons and
the possibilities giving of the buttons without icons for example).
Finally one will see that at the desired time.
I know that this project is not so useful only that, at least much
priority than the topic of Fedora 9 which mobilizes you. But I hold so
that you know it, to have of the assistance but also and especially, to
officialize the project and to hope in the long term to make it official
for a future integration of the unit.
Though it is I thank you and I wish you a good continuation.
