== Debian wiki: community icon ==

The [[https://wiki.debian.org/Portal/IDB?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=icon-community-32x32.png|icon representing "community"]] on the Debian wiki is [[DebianBug:526613|apparently]] cultural appropriation, which some folks aren't happy about so we need a replacement 32x32 icon that represents "community" in a different way. This has been an issue for a long time but hasn't been resolved yet. I'm hoping someone with icon design skills or knowledge of upstream icon design communities could come up with something that is visually similar to the other icons that we use on the [[FrontPage|front page]] of the Debian wiki. To contribute a new icon, please attach it to the [[FrontPage|front page]] and send a mail to Debian bug [[DebianBug:526613|#526613]].

JuggleMaster icons

In 726446 the addition of icons for aajm and jmdlx is requested. These packages provide two interfaces to the same tool, JuggleMaster. The tool aims to help people to learn juggle (i.e. throwing things into the air and catching them). Currently, there are no icons for JuggleMaster.

  • Since most of JuggleMaster is covered by GPL2+ it would be good to have icons under the same license.

  • Information about needed sizes can be found on ?Games/ReleaseGoal. menu needs 32x32 pixels, desktop needs larger ones or SVG.

  • Ideally, the icons for both tools would look very similar (or equal), because both tools facilitate the same task.
  • JuggleMaster visually simulates juggling (usually 3) balls. representative screenshot.

  • Preferred contact is mail to 726446@bugs.debian.org. Request added by ?HelmutGrohne.

Thanks in advance!

Debian wiki: icons for fixed/open bugs

The wiki has some JavaScript to check the status of embedded bug reports and apply some CSS. The bug report links just get a normal web link icon right now. For a while I've wanted two 16x16 icons representing fixed bugs and unfixed bugs. I tried doing this myself but I failed to come up with appropriate icons. I'm hoping someone with icon design skills can create or find appropriate icons for us. You can see the feature in action here. To contribute these icons, please report a bug against the wiki.debian.org package.

Debian Long Term Support is about providing security support of Debian packages for a long period. For many, this is rather dull and boring work and it would be nice to have a team/project logo that is exactly the opposite: fun and engaging. We don't have any specific requirements (it's all about very abstract concepts and thus difficult to put into pictures) and welcome proposals.

Related concepts:

  • Security, hardening, reliability, stability, closing security holes
  • Time period (5 years of support): time flying away, getting older

Possible ideas to explore:

  • Some band aid on a Debian logo? (idea of closing security holes)
  • A ninja chasing a cracker/a bug?
  • Different ways to combine a Debian logo and the LTS letters
