Description sebb 2013-10-17 18:41:50 UTC
I installed 4.0.1 recently, and noticed that the ASF feather logo has got rather strange text associated with it.

The file in question seems to be:

This has the Apache Feather in the bottom RHS, as follows:

{Apache.......}   Apache
{Feather logo }      Project

This is really confusing.

The URL is for the OpenOffice product, not the ASF.
Also there is no such entity as "Apache Project"

It seems wrong to associate the Apache Feather with any URL except

Likewise the feather should have the proper text for the ASF, i.e.
"The Apache Software Foundation"

See for example:

we can drop the feather in the start center completely or let it stand alone but I don't like the idea to link back to where our typical user is lost on the first shot.
Comment 2 sebb 2013-10-18 11:43:30 UTC
My point is that the URL and text must agree with the logo.
I don't think it makes sense to drop the ASF feather; the Apache relationship is vital for branding.

You can add an additional URL, for example in the middle of the page under the AOO logo. This would give it more prominence.

The bottom of the screen should probably have some additional text to claim trademarks for the AOO and Apache logos.

A possible fix for intro.png

Because the splash screen isn't on the screen for very long, I suggest no links. Here is a png with the correct ASF logo with no link.

I would prefer

1. remove it
or if the majority wants to keep it
2. make the Apache logo much smaller and move it down a little bit. It's to dominant at the moment
