Hi Christoph, all,
Even if I'd like to see different mimetype icons in the final release than
the OOo3.2.0 icons, I don't think we can create some in the short timeframe,
if we want to avoid lower quality.
+1. We need time to iterate through designs and test them out
thoroughly to produce a high quality result. Of course, that doesn't
mean we have to stop what we're doing and wait - we will need good
momentum to deliver results in time and these directions will
certainly help in focusing our efforts.
We'll have to tell our users about the planned update of the graphics, but
at least we provide colors...
* From LibO 3.3. to 3.4: Finalize the branding stuff for "initial
branding" and further refine it (e.g. create missing MIME icons
etc.) and use it for the software. More important, start working
on the "community branding" (e.g. brainstorming, community
values, demos, agreement, ...).
This version should contain the final mimetype icons IMHO, even if they
would rather be part of the "community branding" for LibO 3.5. But I don't
want to release another version with the "old" icons - and don't see a
reason to create an interim branding set of icons for just one release.
I agree, although I think all branding should be open to minor tweaks
(definition: taking existing material and modifying it some small way
to improve its usability). It would be nice if we shipped with perfect
icons but based on user feedback, there might be something we missed
no matter how much testing we do initially. There could be a branding
review and opportunities for more substantial changes for major
* After LibO 3.5: Use the "community branding" and for both the
software and also for the web presence etc.
What do you think? We may ask the TDF Steering Committee to decide on
that to make this somehow official.
+1 from me too, with one small caveat: I'm not sure about how soon
these releases are going to come out (i.e., faster than once every 6-8
months), so I wouldn't like to talk about version numbers without any
