+ No restrictions on colors, ideas, whatever (just no text).
Given our current policy of using wallpaper as the base for other art (Bootsplash,
application splashes, etc) you're asking for a great deal of work from anyone
who's going to take up this task.
I'm sure it is a great deal of work... packagers and the rest of
people, we just raise our hands into the sky and pray for stuff to
happen... Often a miracle happens and things get done by themselves.
Maybe 'artists' are the only ones who 'work' in openSUSE.
Wouldn't it make more sense to use the 12.2 wallpaper?
The current state of the 12.2 wallpaper can be found in the openSUSE art gitorious repo
it isn't finished, if you want a completed design, what's wrong with the 12.1
wallpaper - which is probably the version you're currently basing your spin on
None of our projects other 'spins' - openSUSE Education, Tumbleweed, etc, have
their own art direction, and I would be nervous about committing my time and effort to a
side project that is yet to demonstrate user uptake.
As I am getting nervous in commiting mine to ear such things... :/ I
just wish Sirko was here.
Having it's own logo makes sense and is much less work - that's the norm for
our side spins, banning text however disqualifies the possibility of basing your logo on
any other logo we currently have in use..
Why is text out of the question?
You are the designer, you above all else should know the answer...
let's say, it's a marketing thing.
