I know that I’ve been banging this drum for a while, but nothing is really happening.
@d0od I could make an announcement but you have the audience. Would you write a few words about this on OMG? I know that it’s the free-culture-showcase issue all over again (like you said, announcing on your site is for Ubuntu users and not photographers) but the users that needs to throw their “general consensus” are there.
As Will writes above:
…I’d suggest you start by getting a PPA up with the new sound theme in which people can install. If it’s packaged correctly, and we can advise on that for sure, then we could add it to Universe and people can install it easily. If the general consensus is positive then we can look at switching the default over to it further down the road…
I really feel that “contest” is the wrong word. It’s more along the lines of participate and contribute to the project. Contest = prize, and there’s nothing to win here other than making Ubuntu better.
Anyway, it would be awesome if you could get:
- Sound designers to contribute sound themes!
- Everyday users to test (although I haven’t created a PPA).
