Hi all
For the new homepage (a preview is visible at
https://debian-newhomepage.larjona.net/ ), we have added some icons to the main
* People
* Our Philosophy
* Get Involved, Contribute
* Why Debian
* User Support
* Security Updates
* More

The current icons have been added in the /logos folder in these commits:




AFAIK the images themselves have been taken from

Several concerns have been raised about this (about the license and about the
"ying/yang" icon, that can be perceived as controversial), so I'm proposing to
change them and use other icons that are distributed under a free license, and
trying to avoid controversial images.

My proposal, for now, is to use icons from the "Fork Awesome" [1] or "Material"
[2] fonts. Both have free/open source license and are packaged in Debian [3] [4].

[1] https://forkaweso.me/
[2] https://material.io/resources/icons/
[3] https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=fonts-materialdesignicons-webfont
[4] https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=fonts-fork-awesome

However, I don't know if the Debian packages include the icons we particularly
want. I've done some proposals for new icons in:


if you can comment or help us, we can figure out the ones we all like best and
then see if we can use the Debian package or download the individual images from
the newer upstream repo.

I'm not sure about how to actually include and show the icons (fonts) in the
website either, but I guess other people know, and if not, I would have a look
at the documentation.

Kind regards,
Laura Arjona Reina
