This article is for discussing Arch Linux artwork and branding ideas. Feel free to add any suggestions or concerns.
Separate branding from upstream packages
Create a separate package of artwork for upstream packages, including:
- login themes
- desktop environment additions (wallpapers, icons, etc.)
- splash screens
Include post-install notes informing the user where to find the theme and where to modify its preference.
- Upstream packages are delivered as-is
- Users can choose whether to download Arch-branded content
- Users will have to modify theme settings manually
Package Naming Scheme
If artwork is separated from upstream packages, we should have a consistent naming scheme, for example:
Provide at least 1 style-neutral (minimalist) theme for the standard packages:
- Framebuffer logo
