Fedora doesn’t follow a model of: Get lots … Continue reading

Design team imageboard test server and WE NEED Fedora 16 theme artists!

Fedora Imageboard Test Server Yesterday with some help from smooge and nb, I set up a Danbooru-style image board to test out, and I am hoping that Fedora artists and designers might play with it and see if it’d be a useful resource.
