Re: Proposal: Wallpaper extras submission/packaging procedure

The current gallery system for the Wallpaper Extras -- https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/Wallpaper_Extras
isn't working. It doesn't do us good for keeping track of attributions,
especially if we start taking lots of outside contributions from Flickr
or the like (which I plan on doing soon).

I propose the following method for controlling the wallpaper extras:

The entire wallpaper extras framework for submission and tracking
will be on the wiki, through MediaWiki's category system. The main
category will be [[Category:Wallpaper extras]], which will contain only
other categories and unsorted wallpapers.

Subcategories to that will be along the lines of [[Category:Abstract
wallpaper extras]], which can also contain other subcategories if we
want to categorize further. Categories have a built-in gallery setup.

The image page itself (i.e., [[Image:Wallpaper-nicubunu-hay.jpg]]) will
contain a template (which we'll need to write) that will contain
information such as the creator, the URL it was taken from (if
applicable), and who added it to the wiki, and what license was
originally under.

From this, we can produce a Python script that will take all of the
images from the wiki with its metadata and put it in a git repository,
stored on Fedora Hosted. A CREDITS file (or something similar) can be
created to give the necessary attribution to the original author under
the CC-BY-SA license, which would be derived from the image's metadata.

Everyone's thoughts? I think this gives an appropriate balance between
ease of adding new wallpapers while still making it easy to produce a
set of RPMs for Fedora. I can take care of writing the scripts.


I personally think we should hold a wallpaper contest photo artwork etc
with a specific subject/theme in conduction with fedoramagazine each month
or so then top 3 picture ( or top in each category ) would be picked added to the wiki and package.

There has to be some kind of review process both for the wiki and or contest.

I can flood the wiki with pictures which I would think were good but that necessary does not
make it that the majority of the public agrees with me..
