Unmaintained Free Software progress

Unmaintained Free Software new main page

Yet another Unmaintained Free Software update:

Thanks to Matthias (again), we now have a wonderful new main page in the wiki, which looks a lot better than the old one which I had created a long time ago...

The nice icons were created by David Vignoni for the Nuvola icon theme for KDE 3.x. They're available under terms of the GNU LGPL.

Many other things in the wiki are currently undergoing a long-overdue update and fixing phase. I plan to upgrade the MediaWiki installation we're using, and some new MediaWiki extensions will be added, too.

Oh, and I created and installed a nice favicon for the site, based on the project logo. If you ever wondered how those things are created, here's one possibility:

  1. Create two PNG images, one 16x16, one 32x32 pixels.
  2. apt-get install icoutils
  3. icotool -c foo16x16.png foo32x32.png > favicon.ico
  4. Place the resulting favicon.ico file in your DocumentRoot. Done.

I'm sure there are other and better ways to do it, but this was the first I came up with after a quick apt-cache search favicon.
