KDE Kleanup *Update*

KDE Kleanup *Update*


By theobroma
Published: Aug 23 2005

We have starting the process of removing what is considered outdated artwork from KDE. It is imperative that we hear from a majority on this. The first proposed changes will be to what are considered outdated background wallpaper tiles.



It is important to note that this DOES NOT pertain to all background tiles used throughout KDE. This pertains only to the "desktop background wallpaper tiles".

This is the list of background wallpaper tiles that are being considered for removal.



All Good People

Black Marble

Chicken Songs

Circuit

Foggy

Marble

No Ones Laughing

Paper

Planning And Probing

Time for Lunch

Totally New Product

Won Ton Soup



There are two polls currently running at KDE-Artists.org located here. KDE Kleanup

The data collected from these polls will be used to move to the next step in implementing these changes. Thank you we look forward to counting your vote.



*UPDATE* dannya logged into svn on Monday and removed all of the tiles on the list as well as many wallpapers that he determined should go. If you created any of the artwork that was moved it was said that he would contact you. If you have not been contacted yet and are curious about the reasoning behind this. You can find him on kde-look here dannya Thank you all for your input. ;)

 Tiles

IMHO all tiles can go. I've never found a tile that makes a beautiful desktop. I rather use a plain color than a tile.

The tilable wallpapers are very useful to use as folder backgrounds. You can give each folder a different look without having to use a full screen sized image. Try it sometime! They are also good anywhere else you want a something between a plain solid color and a fancy desktop wallpaper. Like the background of KDM, for example. I also like to use them on my #2, #3, and #4 desktops.

By all means, get rid of the ugly ones (Paper01), but leave the good Propaganda/Poag artwork.

All Good People -- it's ok, may stay
Ancient Glyphs -- should be removed
Appropriately-Left-Handed -- may stay
Blkmarble -- remove that! Tiles really bad
blue angle swirl -- no reason to keep it
bluegreencrisscross -- can't believe it hasn't been removed already
Chicken Songs -- it's ok
Circuit -- the idea is good, but the actual pic sucks
foggy -- should be sent to /dev/null
gold crinkle -- should follow foggy
Marble01 -- this one coild stay
No Ones Laughing -- never liked that one
northbeach -- delete it already
Paper01 -- plain ugly
Planning And Probing -- that one is really nice
Prpbumps -- I think if it's deleted, nobody will regret
sunday brunch -- not good enough to stay
Superfluous Organ -- this one can be left
The Good Times -- looks like goo
Time For Lunch -- not the best one, but not the worst.
Totally New Product -- one of the few nice tiles
vegetative fog -- looks awfully
Water01 -- should probably go
Whirling Spirit -- tiles too bad to be left
Won Ton Soup -- many people dislike it, but it could be left in

This is my humble opinion. YMMV


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

I just don't know .. i never used them but i think you'll find people who consider them useful and don't want them to be removed from the next releases. I think that the best solutions is to make them available on the web as a package so if anyone needs them he'll be able to retrive them :)


Remember, cute and cuddly, boys. Cute and cuddly.

Did dannya have the authority to do this? Did he decide on it alone?

I have no idea where his maintainer privileges come from? I asked him once and he just answered with a rebuke. ? But from recent events I would say he is definitely beyond reproach. In fact I expect to be visited by two men dressed in black at any moment. hehehe hahaha lol ;)

Ah. One of THOSE kinds of maintainers. Nice to know that we're still giving commit bits to any thug who demands one.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
