First of all, thank you very much! To be honest 90% I thought it will be not 
deleted. Second I've put in the CC the public list, to try to avoid the 
Streisand Effect :D
Thanks again,Zsolt Kantor

The GNU Policy for hosted free software projects is that they are to
always remain available to the community.  Even if the original
maintainer leaves or becomes disabled others might pick the project up
and continue it.

The policy is that when files have been committed to the community
that they should not be removed.  However I sympathize with you and
therefore I broke the rules and did remove that (innocuous in my
opinion) image from the repository as it is not source code and is
purely peripheral to the project.  Note however that we have no
control over any other mirror site that may have additional copies of

Requests such as these of this type should always be made to
savannah-hackers-private as the savannah-hackers-public list is also
public and just draws attention to these things.  Are you aware of the
Streisand Effect?  The act of trying to suppress something simply
calls more attention to it.

Usually it is best to leave sleeping dogs lie.
