Hi Drew, *

I've been much too short in my comment - thanks for clarification...

Of course. The design Drew chose for his SCALE DVD is based on

Yes and I mentioned that in (I think) each post referring to that

My single point in this mail was: The LibO-Box is part of our community.
I wanted to show that you are aware of this work - that's all.

But let's be fair - it has the official mime-icons placed in a
semi-circle, the background used is gone, the logo is changed from
official to community, all text, even as an en translation from the de,
from the original is either gone, altered and repositioned, below each
icon now  text added that is not on the original - so yes it saved a few

That's what I meant by "it's based on" - it follows the same "visual 
language". If you understood it as "copied" or "wasn't able to create 
anything on his own" I'm very sorry - it's exactly the opposite to what 
I meant!

I want to get a common design for all community distributions - but
at the moment I can't spend enough time on this task.

[... interactive work on the US marketing mailing list ... ]

- so calling it 'Drew's' disc is a bit of a stretch, IMO.

Sorry - I didn't know. I can't follow the US marketing list too :-(

On a personal note, and as I mentioned on the US list, I find it
interesting that after posting to the international design list, no
response, but it was discussed, briefly, on the German list.

It is marked for reply (as about 30 other mails on the design list), 
but you're right - a short "I like it - it fit's with the branding guideline"
would have been appropriate. I'll remember (hopefully) for the
next time.

The reason why to post it on the DE-list was a different one:
People there still discussed different proposals for their DVD
design. As I already mentioned, I want to create a consistent 
Branding Design for LibreOffice, so I hoped they would tend to
the proposal similar to the US group's design. They did ;-)


Best regards

And sorry again for any displeasure!
