arraybolt3I'm realizing that the new official fonts used in Kubuntu's new branding aren't actually packaged for Ubuntu yet. Should we be packaging and seeding those in Kubuntu? (I'm happy to package them btw)02:01
arraybolt3bug filed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-meta/+bug/206126002:13
valoriecan I see the new font somewhere?04:34
arraybolt3valorie: https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Space+Grotesk and https://fonts.google.com/specimen/DM+Mono are the ones I just packaged04:52
arraybolt3also https://fonts.google.com/specimen/IBM+Plex+Sans but it's already in Ubuntu's repos.04:53
valorieI like the first one a LOT04:53
valorie+1 to the second one as well04:53
valoriethank you for doing that packaging04:54
arraybolt3happy to :)04:54
valorieall very close to one another04:54
valorielife is getting exciting!04:55
arraybolt3We may end up having to just vendor Space Grotesk in kubuntu-installer-prompt and cope with it not being on the end-user system unless they intentionally install it. I forgot that NEW packages required FFes, and we're awfully late for an FFe.07:13
IrcsomeBot<Rick_Timmis> Thank you arraybolt3 there are also a couple of DM mono fonts for code etc.. details in the branding guide09:56

IrcsomeBot<Rick_Timmis> I put a little Facebook promotion together. In the last 24hrs our brand has been seen by 73000 people, and 2000 went to our website. The really interesting feature is that by a significant margin those people are Women. Feels awesome to have a woman as our lead developer.10:08

arraybolt3Rick_Timmis: Yep, I packaged both DM Mono and Space Grotesk. We'll see what happens with them, hopefully we can seed them, worst case scenario the end user will have to download them themselves but we can still vendor them in the one package that really needs it (the installer prompt).14:32
arraybolt3Rick_Timmis: By the way, if we have Calamares slides ready some time today, I can package them up and show how they're going to look in the end, then upload to the archive if we like it.14:48
arraybolt3Also, we need a welcome image for the first screen. That should be pretty easy to "wing" (use the same gradient background, put the new Kubuntu logo on it and then place "24.04" somewhere under it, probably aligned to the right edge of the word "kubuntu"). In fact lemme try and make an example now.14:49
arraybolt3Because the Release Team already seems frustrated with our speed (based on my interaction with vorlon last night), I'm anxious to get things done sooner rather than later.14:49

IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> I am no arist by any stretch, but I have worked out a new Plymouth logo bouncy thing with our new logo name plate. I will get it uploaded to staging tonight for testing.18:00
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> Artist either, can't even spell it!18:01
IrcsomeBot<Rick_Timmis> Folks, I won't get the slides finished today, it's been too busy today, and I'm spent. Should be able to do them tomorrow. Sorry18:36
IrcsomeBot<tsimonq2> No worries, we'll get them in. Thanks for your work on that! Let me know what I can do to help :) (re @Rick_Timmis: Folks, I won't get the slides finished today, it's been too busy today, and I'm spent. Should be able to do them tomorrow. Sorry)18:39
IrcsomeBot<Rick_Timmis> Once I have the slides finished, I'll give you a shout to help me get them merge into the repo.18:42
arraybolt3awesome, thank you!18:45
arraybolt3Another thing with branding (since I'm fiddling with the installer prompt now), which wallpaper are we intending to use? We had branding and wallpaper contests, and it's unclear whether we're using a wallpaper from the winning branding contest entry or the winning wallpaper contest entry.18:48
arraybolt3What is our official wallpaper this cycle?18:48
arraybolt3It looks like we already are using one of them as the lock screen, should we use the same wallpaper for the session as we use for the lock screen?19:09
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> It should be changed... Blue100 (re @IrcsomeBot: <arraybolt3> It looks like we already are using one of them as the lock screen, should we use the same wallpaper for the session as we use for the lock screen?)19:11
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> Might have to create a new user to see if it hasn't hit archive19:12
arraybolt3it has hit the archive, but it isn't set right.19:13
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> Only thing I had left was Plymouth and colors, since you wonderful folks are covering calamares bits.19:13
arraybolt3I just did a fresh install of the latest daily and it had the wrong wallpaper for the user.19:14
arraybolt3But the correct lock screen.19:14
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore> Fooey, I tested it19:14
IrcsomeBot<sgmoore>  I will take look19:14
