Hey folks,

So it looks like we need a banner for the front page of FPO for the F9 
launch. I think Ricky and tw2113 were working taking screenshots of F9 
for the website. Do you guys have those screenshots publicly accessible 
somewhere? I'm thinking we could use them for the banner.

Our tagline is: "Fedora 9. Make Waves."

A couple of ideas for the main banner layout to correspond with this:

1) Have three screenshots that are all shined-up and blinged-up in three 
portal things with small, glowing pieces of sulphur surrounding them. 
Think three bottles of cold brew in ice, except the gleaming sulphur 
crystals are the ice and the screenshots are the brew. :) Pro: blingy, 
easy to do quickly. Con: Tagline is about waves, and this emphasizes 

2) Have three screenshots emerge from the water in a dark cave-like 
environment (ala

edges of the screenshots are glowing and cast bright reflections in the 
rippled water. Pro: fits with tagline, blingy. Con: Might take longer to 

If we keep the banner text-free (no translations to worry about) then we 
can just have the byline run along top the graphic in plaintext.

Whatchu think? Any other ideas?
