Bug#758768: add alt text for Ubuntu logo

This is what you see in the tooltip, yes. But AFAIK, this only works if
you have javascript enabled. I believe that we should not rely on this
just to have tooltips and it has been suggested in the past to replace
those "data-title" with standart title="…" attributes (and then drop the
has-tooltip class). There are many more places where we should fix this.

Also the picture is displayed via CSS on a simple <i> tag which again
might render to nothing in a text-mode browser. I'm not sure if we can put
an "alt" attribute on a <i> so maybe we should replace those <i> with
<img>... Some experimenting might be required (with links and/or lynx).

See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=753800 for another
bug where someone complains of this.

Great, that's why I added the newcomer tag, I hope you will have a look at
other bugs and start enjoying to contribute more :-)
