Sprints

Whiteboard

From Etherpad:

initiatives:
- interviews of studios and individuals which successfully used open source

Success
- wallpaper contest

content ideas:
- user research (package kit in the toolkit section for user testing)
- explain design decision for radical changes
- showcase succesful community initiatives (eg. branded cards)
- promote and moderate community reviews of new apps
- list the projects we are workking on and how to contribute (and things in the radar that community could help with, making the blog more structured?)

wallpaper contest:
- adding wallpaper (or hi-res) on DVD
- easy way to access the ones which unfortunately couldn't fit in the distro

Infestigate some little design work which could be outsourced to the community (ie. branding in games, ie. cards)

need scalable icons in software center
have a clearer way to contact the design team (eg. outside launchpad bugs)
nice community based LibreOffice templates
(LibreOffice contextual menu in Nautilus, check notes with Charline)
clarify ayatana list (maybe creating ubuntu-design mailing list? Renaiming it?) - have a better attitude to make things to happen [Laura will help with the discussion]
