Is there any currently meaningful restriction remaining on the images color palette / depth for these different elements (rootskel-gtk, debian-installer) ?
The wiki for the Debian theme proposals requirements mentions complicated things like :
- Isolinux: 640x300px, 4bit color depth (means: 16 colors). View Make Sys Image.
- Syslinux: 640x300px, 16bit color depth (means: 65,536 colors), in PNG format.
- Debian Installer
A picture with 800x75px, 16bit (65536 colors).
But looking at recent packages, the PNG are just generated with rsvg-convert that produces plain 24-bit images.
A quick look at the iso boot menu or debian installer banner gradients tells that it’s not 16 bit / 65536 colors.
Can you confirm we don’t need to keep these restrictions so we can update the requirements ?
