Hey everyone,

I pinged Mairin about DesignHub and the following is her reply.

DesignHub is in need of a designer to help Robby move forward with it.

We also recently found out via OScon about a project called PickPic which

The other side of the general effort to improve collaboration tools

Thanks for the F14 wallpaper compliment. In Fedora we work extremely hard to

Thanks Mairin!
