No problem with that, but please remove me from the Cc, since I am
subscribed to the list :-)

Argh, I forgot to specify the license for the work, right. I'll have
the banners licensed as CC-BY-SA and the scripts (which one may or may
not want/need) under AGPL. Fine with that? I'll update the repository
with the licensing info as soon as I can.

Be sure to check the readme.md file, since it may give some useful
pointers. I chose to sed/grep the file, since I wanted to avoid any
dependencies in deployment (of course, it may take a one-liner py/pl
to do this, if libraries are provided).

Heh, they surely have their use in some places other than bugs.d.o :-)

Thanks for showing your interest in this, I hope you can make good use
of the banners!
