Todo

  • Wiki Page Checkmark.png
  • Mail fedora-marketing
  • Mail Fedora-design
  • Blog Posts
  • Decide a project structure so we know what to include in the mockup
  • Set date/time for first mockup sprint
    • RyanRix needs to follow up tomorrow with parents about possible time, will ping franciscod
  • Project name to be decided "fedora-tour" as place holder for time being
  • Ping firstboot maintainer about changes for project
  • Talk to desktop team about what interface they'd prefer (GTK / QT / Browser)
  • (later) fedorahosted space once we begin to code
