Hi Ron, :-)

Any chance we can get the source file for your banner? (for Gimp,
Inkscape, Photoshop or whatever...)

Your banner will be available for download from a special page for
such community-offered supporter artwork, for site banners, etc., over
the next few days.


It should be possible to use a SVG (plain) to generate dynamically localized PNGs (the "Liberate Your Life" text etc.) via a Search-and-Replace script (e.g. PHP). It was done in Fedora for a release counter ("XX days to F14") and several other graphical banners.

I think its not overly complicated to do this, maybe the webmins will find it easier to serve each language an already prepared image (which can then be generated via scripting for localized versions).

The localized texts can be collected through Pootle, but even simpler/faster is to send a request to the l10n-mailinglist (we all know that graphic artists never start to work long before deadlines ;-) )

My point is mostly to emphasize on the importance of having the original vector artwork at hand somewhere, whether its plain SVG or layered .XCF/.PNG.

Best regards,

Sveinn í Felli
