Hi Bernhard, all!

In the LibO case, I'd go for "adding Libre" - you take? (+1/-1/0)

Therefore I vote with +1.

But I'd prefer "LibreGreen 1" over "Libre Green 1", because without the 
space "LibreGreen" is a name, while in "Libre Green" libre can be 
understood as descriptive adjective.

True, but removing the whitespace makes it less readable ... originally,
we had this kind of naming, but since we added more colors, it became an
issue to me - when I've created the palettes for LibreOffice and

To be consistent, we should use "LibreGreen Accent" instead of "Green 
Accent" - OpenGrok shows the latter.

OpenGrok is okay, since I asked for that name when it got integrated ;-)


2. The gray shades are missing in the table - these are not necessarily
part of the official branding palette, but very helpful when working on
documents (rationale: changing palettes in LibO is still time consuming,
so the basic colors should be included).

I think we should define two grey values as "LibreGrey" (or 
"LibreGray"). One should be the grey tone of the lighter part in the 
greyscale logo. As it is the equivalent to "LibreGreen" (as official 
LibO color "LibreGreen 1" might be called this way IMHO), I'd call it 
"LibreGrey 1".

The name "Green 1" has some historic reasons, since - originally - it
was the darkest green. The "Green 0" was some mysterious workaround to
keep the name, since it already had been used extensively. Thus, the
number marks the "intensity" of the color.

To provide additional information, I've used the "Comment" section in
the spreadsheet table. If you look at the Inkscape palette, hover the
"LibreGreen 1" item and Inkscape will show "LibreGreen 1 (LibreOffice
Main Color)".

So for such kind of information, I propose to keep this kind of naming

The greyscale logo uses a 50% grey level (#808080), and I'd like to keep it.

But the darker part of the logo is black only in the basic logo.
We already discussed the black issue several times, so I'd like to see a 
"LibreGrey 0" to be used for the dark part of the colored and the 
greyscale logo.

In my eyes 80% grey (#333333) is dark enough to look distinct from the 
lighter tone, but is recognized as "not black".

We could add "LibreGrey 2" and "LibreGrey 3", but I don't think this is 
necessary for the LibO palette.

Mmh, I got lost a bit ... if I understood it correctly, you discuss the
logo instead of the color palette to be included in / translated for

Concerning the former, the black is still fine for the Basic logo for
various reasons. Indeed, the Contemporary logo features the different
gray shadings (and is the only one as far as I remember).

If we include the basic colors in the palette, more grey values are as 
important as the main colors.

True, that's what I've suggested - the LibreOffice color palette
available in the wiki does feature all these gray values; equally to the
Inkscape palette. I'll add the source code at the end of the mail - for
easier reference.

Should this be filed as an

We don't need an issue to decide about the content of the LibO palette. 
But we probably will, when our decision will lead to an update on the 
color palette inside LibO.

That's what I've meant :-)

Okay, so I summarize that (personal interpretation of the current state
of the discussion):
      * the LibreOffice color palette should contain all gray shadings
        (also available in the Inkscape palette)
      * the color names in the palettes should use "Libre"
      * for the sake of good readability, I'd like to keep a whitespace
        between "Libre" and the color name.
