== 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.</ br>
 
 
 
both a GTK and a QT interface?
 
 
 
==== 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.
 
 
 
=== 26 Nov - Ankur Blog Post "A new Fedora Project" ===
 
http://dodoincfedora.wordpress.com/2009/11/26/a-new-fedora-project/
 
 
 
=== 26 Nov - First Meeting ===
 
Brought up issue with mchua after discussing in #fedora-social. #startmeeting was a little after this, but we went over what the project could be, and how to go about starting and implementing it.
