Synopsis

    • New users
      • "New to fedora?"
      • info on:
        • comparison to windows interface (will have to be different for GTK and Qt)
        • apps
        • basic faq (eg "how to update?" could come under tools too)
        • tools (eg packagekit)
        • fedora community (?)
        • common bugs and fixes
        • getting help (IRC, forums, lists)

        • <add more>
    • General users
      • "what's new in F$release?"
        • stuff from the "new users" will fit in here too
        • how to report a bug?
    • Developers ( so basically all fedora users) is this needed??

Todo

  • Wiki Page Checkmark.png
  • Mail fedora-marketing
  • Mail Fedora-design
  • Blog Posts Checkmark.png
  • Decide a project structure so we know what to include in the mockup
  • Set date/time for first mockup sprint Checkmark.png
    • RyanRix needs to follow up tomorrow with parents about possible time, will ping franciscod Checkmark.png
  • 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

Project Outline

Firstboot Final Page

Add check box to final form of firstboot so that user can choose whether or not to launch this.</ br> Will need to ping firstboot maintainer regarding this, make sure that they are aware of possible changes.

Checkbox text?

  • "I'm new to Fedora"
  • "Tell me more about the Fedora Project"
  • "Tell me more about Fedora Linux"
  • "Tell me more about the Fedora Linux and the Fedora Project"
  • "Take a quick tour of Fedora $release $codename"
  • <insert more as they come to mind>

Main Interface

  • mchua and franciscod threw around a few ideas to play with, each should be considered.
  • both a GTK and a QT interface? (refer talk page)

Web Interface

  • Pros:
    • Easy maintenance
  • Cons:
    • Dependance on web browser
    • interface limitations

PyGTK

  • Pros:
    • Faster than loading browser
    • More powerful
    • Matches appearane of default Desktop Spin
  • Cons:
    • Maintenance
    • Learning curve

PyQt

  • Pros:
    • Faster than loading browser
    • More powerful
  • Cons:
    • Maintenance
    • Learning curve
    • May seem out of place in Desktop spin (may look better, but out of place)

Documentation

List blog posts, meeting minutes/logs, chats, etc.
