= How To Contribute =
/!\ '''Feisty artwork will be design by Cliff -- the fellow who designed the Dapper look. Do not expect to be able to contribute until sabdfl releases the official work. It is closed design involving Cliff and sabdfl only.'''
The Ubuntu Artwork team and mailing list serves as a get-together for people who create artwork with and/or for Ubuntu (including the derivatives). Besides great visual design, our interests include the use of Free Software and open processes to get there.
Line 14: Line 12:
As with the Ubuntu development team, we utilize Launchpad.net by constructing specifications. The Art specific specifications are subscribed to the ubuntu-art team ( https://launchpad.net/people/ubuntu-art/+specs ). The current specifications we are tackling are those marked approved by the Ubuntu development core. Development of the default wallpaper, GTK themes, and icon sets for Ubuntu are lead by the Canonical Design Team. Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu, Lubuntu and supported packages are open to contributions in these categories.
Line 16: Line 14:
Again, check the specifications and work towards solving them. If they are not yet approved, your work could still prove vital. Please leave a documentation trail for others to reference if you contribute to any of the specifications. Concepts going beyond visual design into functionality are better handled by the [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ayatana|Ayatana project]].
Line 18: Line 16:
If you have an idea, it is strongly advised that get involved via the above link. Once you are involved, you can create specifications via the guidelines laid out in Self:/Specs namespace. == What we do! ==

= Wiki Contributions =
If you have a contribution for the wiki and the mailing list feels it is needed, please use the /PageTemplate and put your page in Self:/Incoming. Keep it clear and simple.

= Other ArtworkTeams =
Currently we are attempting to collect all art related people under the ubuntu-art team on Launchpad. This has been quite successful thus far, and therefore one should consider the ubuntu-art team as a good starting point for work. For links to legacy pages, please see the following links:
 * EdubuntuArtwork. See also their [https://launchpad.net/people/edubuntu-artwork edubuntu-artwork] team on Launchpad.
 * KubuntuArtwork.
 * XubuntuArtwork.
