Package: xtartan
Version: 2.3-14
Severity: minor


Thanks for including the Debian Tartan :-)

A minor nit to pick though.

The top left corner would normally (in a kilt) be the one that has the
dash-dot-dot (Morse 'D') running in both directions, so that it reads
both left-to-right and top-to-bottom.

You currently have that corner at bottom-left, rather than top-left.

I'd imagine that you are displaying it in what would be the strictly
correct orientation, as I got the impression that the kilt-makers had
to rotate it before they started making the kilts from it.

If you look at the newly instituted official register, they also have
it wrong, although they are 180-degrees out:


whereas the earlier registration at the STWR had it the right way round.


I'm guessing that the new tartanregister.gov.uk site has generated
its images from the setts (as xtartan presumably does) without taking
orientation into account (which is normally irrelevant for fully symmetric

Cheers, Phil.
