Description Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-05-21 08:37:41 UTC
A request was made by Tobias Wensing to allow the use of the Gentoo logo on a personal t-shirt. As per our name/logo guidelines, this probably falls under the merchandise section.

Two main approvals are needed:
1. Approval for the logo (see attachment)
2. Approval for the product

The product will be a professional t-shirt service provider (most likely spreadshirt.de). The logo is attached for reference, and is based on the hicolor_nofont.png logo with altered coloring (made purple).

Reproducible: Always

I think it's fine, not sure if we already have a monochromatic version of the logo (good for printing).  What do the dots below the logo mean?

It's "gentoo" in braille. Can be confirmed through http://www.brailletranslator.org/.

That's what I imagined, thanks for confirming.
Comment 5 David Abbott gentoo-dev 2017-05-21 19:27:46 UTC
I approve!
Comment 6 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-05-21 19:30:06 UTC
It got my approval as well. I'll contact Tobias with the feedback.
