also please note that most of my previous mail was meant as a running joke coming from a comment from David about the Drupal page where he was mentionning adding a banner that was somewhat satirical regarding web 2.0.

David MENTRE a écrit :
that was used as a paradigm in the meta-service delivery to the
consumer^W voter.

:-D Do you want to be part of our marketing team? ;-)

I think that with the addition of the above politically-correct paragraph, I
can qualify for that function. :-)

But of course I request truckloads of money or else people would think I'm

In fact:

 * The icon is colorful and nice;

You wouldn't blame you own creation, anyway :-)

 * I like the idea of having distinct graphical layout for the official
   and demo server. So your icon could be used for the demo server.

I wasn't aware of the icon mentioned below, and I really wanted to modify your
image so that to real fit in the web2.0 joke.

 * I would prefer putting the icon into the misc/ directory, alongside
   the "official" demexp logo (demexp.xpm). In fact, I would like to
   have both your icon and the official one on Unix and Win32 platform;

"My" is a quite a stretch of what I've done to your banner.

 * Could you rename demexp.ico into demexp-demo.ico?

 * I would prefer that you rename gtk2-clnt/demexp.o into
   gtk2-clnt/demexp-info.o or something like that;

 * Shouldn't we put the demexp.rc into the win32/ directory? And rename
   it demexp-info.rc (to be coherent with previous remark)?

All done.

 * At mid term, it would be nice to generate content of demexp.rc from
   content of demexp.nsi or another external file, in order to have a
   coherent numbering scheme and other application info.

That would be hard. In fact, it would be simpler to do all through Makefile:
makensis has syntax "/D<symbol>=<value>" and windres (the tool to compile the .rc into binary data) has -D<symbol>=<value>

Could you resubmit a patch? I could do it myself but I can't check that
it works. If no let me know and I'll make the modifications myself.

Patch generated with "hg diff" attached, minus the binary part.

BTW, do you use Mercurial? If yes, it is quite easy to export a set of
patches and their comments with "hg export" command.

I had never used it, and I'm a bit too lazy to try to read a FAQ/manual to answer some questions: - Is it possible to generate patches with binary data (for instance base64-encoded)? -a options seems dangerous even it qualifies for a yes. If no, then is what I've done (attach binary data to mail) the only solution? - I did an hg add. It didn't complain. Is it only local? Where would the data end after a hg commit?

So many remarks for a single icon! ;-)

Wars and other slaughters were committed in the name of some icons. We are not yet there hopefully. (this is intended as a play on words in the hope nobody will see matter in it)

Best regards,
Christophe GISQUET
