The poster originally emailed me directly and I asked them to post the
image to the gallery and then post a message to the inkscape mailing
list. Mostly just to see what people were thinking.
I like the idea personally. But I see some challenges to it
The biggest consideration for things like this is the both western
centric and perceivably christian/pagan centric traditions. If images
can be targeted, then it makes it easier to just show it for certain
countries etc. If we don't mind being a bit blustering and ham fisted
about it, then putting up a replacement image is just a matter of a
small code update to the website.
Although then you do have to look after the site later when you need it
to come down.

I'm thinking about starting a tradition of making holiday
the website. Like for example, today I spiffed up the logo for
Community with some lights (not twinkling, but maybe next year ;-p
I'm thinking of just
small and simple like that. Holly and berries, or something.
We couldn't do exactly the same thing on the website, because
doesn't work the same way as IC. (plus it's pretty small) But there
some ways to easily slip in some extra graphics into the website?
Like maybe in the menu/navigation bar? (could they be red
or look like snow is piled on them?) Or the white space between the
logo on the
top-left and the search field on the right?
I saw that cute Inkscape logo with a santa hat in the
what got me started. But unfortunately, it has a solid white
I don't think could be used for the site. I requested either SVG or
transparent PNG, but no answer yet.
I made some sort of straight lines of lights, one of which
might fit in
the white space at the top. But alone, they're hardly creative.
Anyway, if someone could explain what those ways might be,
could sneak in some cute graphics around holidays, I'll take the
to put out a call for such graphics before each major holiday.....or
4 seasons? Or maybe holidays plus 4 seasons?
(I still want to see more graphics on the site, in
general. But that's
a much bigger project which I can't take a leadership role right
now. Well, not
unless someone else wants to co-leader it?)
Thanks for comments :-)
