The blue "g" and red "gentoo" logo have been relicensed to CC-BY-SA-4.0 in the 2016-12-18 trustees meeting, see So the page should be updated accordingly. --ulm (talk) 11:55, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

I have fixed this myself, after getting an ack from dabbott in #gentoo-dev. --ulm (talk) 21:43, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, David Abbott (Dabbott) and Ulrich Müller (Ulm) ! --Maffblaster (talk) 00:29, 29 July 2017 (UTC)

  1. In order to avoid redirects please update any links in this article; for example now redirects to
  2. All links should use HTTPS
  3. All links should use HTTPS
  4. User:Drobbins now redirects to User:Daniel_Robbins
  5. doesn't work anymore; I haven't been able to locate an alternative yet

Thanks. Fturco (talk) 09:52, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

Items 2, 3, and 4 above are done.
As for item 1, the Font Heads font was licensed under the "Fonthead Design Inc. End User License Agreement Version 2.0 - May 19, 2009" which can still be found in the Wayback Machine: However, the above mentioned redirect links to a different "Fontspring Font License Desktop EULA 1.7" license, so I think that updating the link to that would be wrong. Also I cannot find the Font Heads font at Again, the Wayback Machine has a copy of it: So I suggest that we update the links to the ones at
Item 5 presumably is this thread: Maybe Sebastian Pipping (Sping) can confirm this? --ulm (talk) 16:48, 5 August 2017 (UTC)
I've updated the links of items 1 and 5 too, so should be all done now. --ulm (talk) 10:34, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Please add this logo designed for Project Android,

Lucas, this looks amazing! Is this original work created by you? Also, just verifying, it is CC-BY-SA-3.0 licensed, right? Just want to be sure we get it appropriately licensed. Thank you! --Maffblaster (talk) 20:03, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Yes, I created it to use as the repository icon for my fork of the android overlay on gitlab. According to the official branding guidelines, the Android robot is CC-BY-SA-3.0 so I just used it for mine. --Rage (talk) 22:57, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Great. I think it would be good to upload a SVG rendering of the Gentoo + Android robot on a transparent background by itself (without the original icons). The first SVG is now on the project page. What should it be named? Gentoo Android? :P --Maffblaster (talk) 16:25, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
I added a new file with just the robot as requested. --Rage (talk) 15:21, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
I like the name "Gentoid". :) It has been added to the artwork page as well. I'll close discussion. Gentoo needs more people with artistic minds like yourself. --Maffblaster (talk) 20:46, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Minor improvements

  1. now redirects to, but perhaps we should use instead.
  2. now uses the HTTPS protocol.
  3. Under the "Original Znurt" section you can find the following sentence: "Both SVGs and PNGs are licensed under Creative Commons - Attribution / Share Alike." We should add the 2.5 version explicitely in my opinion.
  4. Under the "Gentoo + Android" section you can find the following sentence: "Artwork for the Gentoo Android project created by Lucas Ramage ( Lucas Ramage (rage) )." I would avoid repeating "Lucas Ramage" twice.
  5. Under "The red gentoo logo" section I would add the Path template to "" in the following sentence: "The script is used to customize rendering parameters."

Thanks Fturco (talk) 15:50, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

All done. --ulm (talk) 13:59, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

The blender-gentoo-logo overlay is no longer available on Github. The guide should probably be updated with a new link, or be removed if the repo no longer exists and someone doesn't have a mirror saved somewhere.
