Design Suite

Design Suite is a Fedora Lab based on Workstation media showcasing the design-related tools used by Design Team in addition of audio and video editing. More information is located on Fedora Labs website.

Process

Design Software SIG has three channels for communication:

  • The mailing list design-devel@list.fedoraproject.org for tracking packaging process and design-team@lists.fedoraproject.org,
  • The current wiki page for suggesting design software, the need of reviewing packages or joining the SIG,
  • the IRC channel located on #fedora-design@irc.freenode.net for designers and #fedora-devel@irc.freenode.org for packages.

A Bugzilla tracker named DESIGN-SW is set to track incoming review packages intended for design usage. The reviewer adds inside that report inside the block field.

Packaging

A way to contribute is to package user favorite sofware. Here is the process below:

Development

This section tracks the latest upstream development packaged in individual Fedora People repository. Using them will help to expose bugs, and exploring new features without disturbing the main Fedora repositories. In addition, the resulting source RPM will teach upstream about the good practice of packaging.

A tool to easily build a repo package is called COPR which requires a source RPM and Fedora Account System. Please follow the documentation about its usage.

To use these repository for testing purpose:

  • access to these links below,
  • put the repo file in into /etc/yum.repos.d/
  • execute the update using either Software Update or input the command in terminal using DNF for Fedora 22 and later versions sudo dnf upgrade or with YUM in older releases sudo yum update.
