Hey folks,

Just an update on the spins.fpo design I've been working on. At this 
point I am sure it will not make f8's release but I'd like to get it up 
as soon as is reasonable post-release. :)

So, remember the mockups i did a while back? I started HTML-ifying them; 
I just finished with the main content for the spins details mock (still 
need to add the fpo template to it as well as the icons):

- HTML: http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/spins/spin-details.html
- Mockup: http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/spindetailsmock2.png

The other HTML I want to do is for this mockup:

- Mockup: http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/spinsmock5.png

(the banner at the top will be replaced with new artwork! something like 
this: http://duffy.fedorapeople.org/temp/spins/djs.png)

Overall I think the spins.fpo site should have the following pages:

  -- main page: introduction to what spins are
  |-- spin details page
  |  |
  |  |- bittorrent tutorial
  |  |
  |  |_ what's my arch tutorial
  |-- what is a spin / how do i use a spin page
  |__ how do i create my own spin? page

The open work items I see from a design POV are:

1 - Content for the how to create my own spin page (any suggestions on 
existing content I can use for this page?) (0% done AFAIK)

2 - Content for the what is a spin / how do i use a spin page? (any 
suggestions on existing content I can use for this page?) (0% done AFAIK)

3 - Mockups & HTML for the 6 pages in the above sitemap (maybe 25% there)

4 - Finish DJ banner artwork for the main page (80% done)

5 - Obtain photos from willing Fedora users to represent the spins (25%, 
Manuel Amador has provided me photos, I may need to make a formal call 
for photo submissions or start taking photos of innocent vict^H^H^H^H 
volunteers around the office :))

6 - Get all the content into i18n-able templates and into git... Work 
out a mechanism to generate a details page for each spin and get content 
into it? (0% done, any ideas?)

Eventually I think we will need a spins 'directory' but thus far we have 
few enough spins we dn't have to worry about that yet.

Anyhow, I hope this gives a clear picture of where we're at for the 
blingtastic spins page; if anybody has answers/suggestions for the open 
work items above do share :)
