I know I am new but did want to mention something.
In addition to the excellent idea of showcasing the artwork teams efforts directly on and
in the desktop I would like to suggest using the media where designers already are to draw
new talent. Also, I think it would be good if experienced designers helped mentor those
still learning so as to improve their skill set and make them more productive.
Does this sound wrong? Has this kind of effort been tried before?

As a part of an ongoing effort to make our distro better visually and user

some sort of a unified community tool (or a set of those) to help us widen our outreach.
We are aware that there is already SUSE Connect, as well as an abundance of various
mailing lists and IRC channels. However, few of our users actually know about those, or
actively use them.
So the idea so far is to make a desktop application which would ultimately bind all those
services together into a sort of a single SUSE account (just like the service available in
by Ubuntu, and OSX).
So far this is just an idea and we need your input to see just how far can we take this
and just what exactly we should be looking into in terms of functionality.
So the brief description so far is this:
"A desktop application connecting the whole of openSUSE fandom into a single network
in order to widen the community, lower the communication and contribution barriers and
add a unique twist to openSUSE ecosystem where every new user has an opportunity to share
and communicate with other openSUSE users."
Basically this should be as simple as integrating all our existing social services (Open
Fate, SUSE Connect, mailing lists and IRC canals into a single easy to use "Control
How does the idea sound like to you?
What would be advantages of this effort?
What would be the drawbacks of it?
Would you create yet another account for our openSUSE social services?
