Looks like this thread has run its course. Should we go ahead and form some
kind of rough guideline and then finalize it?

The only other thing that we really did not discuss was the use of
"pointers/cursors". I personally like the "OpenZone white" pointer/cursor
theme. It is available for Gnome and KDE, but it has a very nice defined
white cursor arrow and white fill. This would give everyone a standard
pointer/cursor theme that they could install.

I still don't think this is a really good idea, and the issues have
not been fully thought through - the idea that it is a risk for the
project to take screenshots under Windows, for instance, is based on
false premises for instance.

-1 from me.

I think we have agreed in the absence of any fact that states otherwise, we are playing it safe and are going to take screenshot on other platforms other than windows. Unless we get a legal opinion that allows us to do so, screenshots will be done this way. This has been already discussed on this thread and others and on OOo threads. I don't know how many more times it needs to be rehashed, unless someone with legal authority jumps in and dispels any liability issues.

Personally, I don't think it's worth a fight with MS. We need to pick our battles and this one is really not worth it at this point.
