Inkscape 1.3 About Screen Contributor Voting until April 9
by Maren Hachmann
Hi Inkscape Contributors!
It's that time of the year again :)
We invite you to cast your vote on the 5 awesome About Screen Contest
submissions that were favorited by 242 voting Community members.
For this year's About Screen Contest, we have had 55 submissions from
the Community, 49 of which met the requirements (licensing, branding etc.).
These are the 5 items they liked the most:
* "A long journey“ by Chris Hildenbrand
* "Contest“ by Djelita Abderrahmane
* "Creative Growth“ by Chris Hildenbrand
* "Isometric Madness“ by Denis Kuznetsky
* "Portal“ by Milad Moosavi
(in alphabetical order)
In this two-step selection process, it is now up to us, the Inkscape
Contributors, to select the About Screen that we want for Inkscape 1.3.
It's going to be a difficult choice, as they are all so cool :D
Make sure that you are an Inkscape Member (see previous message or link
below), and if you're not one yet, apply for membership and ask 3 of
your team mates or other contributors whom you have worked with to
confirm your membership.
More info: https://inkscape.org/*membership/blog/inkscape-signs-new-fsa-sfc/
and rank the 5 images by clicking on the little circle right below them
in order of preference (most liked first).
The voting period starts NOW, and ends on April 9, 23:59 UTC.
Voting is on the website only.
The announcement of the winning entry is planned for April 11.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this year's About Screen Contest!

Become an Inkscape Project Member!

Dear Inkscape Contributors,
it's time to make your Inkscape Membership official!
With that come voting rights for all kinds of regular contributors -
like translators, social media managers, forum moderators, documentation
writers, testers, bug managers, ... - (not only developers anymore!).
The first occasion we will be using that for is the Contributor Vote for
the ongoing About Screen Contest (contributor voting starts tomorrow,
and will end on April 9, 23:59 UTC, there will be a separate email for
that!), which is also going to be a bit of a test of the membership
system for the upcoming Inkscape PLC election.
Read all about it here:
If you have any questions or are looking for people to confirm your
membership request, please ask away in the #general rocket.chat channel.
In some cases, it will be helpful to state the nature of your
contributions to the project, or to approach those directly who know
about your contributions.
Please approve membership requests of those whom you know to be a
contributor by first hand experience, and do not approve other
membership requests, as in the worst case, when the person is not a
contributor, that can get your own membership revoked.
Thank you to the PLC and the SFC for getting that set up for us, to the
website team for providing infrastructure for it, and to the Vectors
team for writing about it!

Hi Robert (sorry, had the name wrong in the direct email :-( ),
So, generally, people start translating from the English version, not
any other language version, because that is complete, and all other
translations are both incomplete, as well as possibly incorrect.
For Bosnian, I'd rather take Croatian for comparison, which is much
closer to Bosnian. If you need German translations for comparison, too -
most translation programs support showing translations in other
languages for orientation. You should *not* start from a different
language's file, but make your own, if your language does not exist yet.
The files to use for your translation and the processes involved are
Please read, and also check out
https://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/Translation_information and subpages for
Let us know either here or in the translator chat when you have any
questions about what you find there.
