#2064 HOTFIX: Prefer icons from the default and hicolor themes
Closed: Fixed None Opened 9 years ago by toshio.

Christopher Aillon brought up a problem in the current icon code for
PackageDB. It seems that mozilla is sensitive to the icon that is
associated with the firefox web browser. So we shouldn't be showing icons
other than the default or hicolor icon set for firefox or risk trademark
repurcussions.

I've removed the other icons from the pkgdb for now but newer packages with
icons for firefox that get imported into the database could potentially
occur at any time.

Martin Bacovsky has a small patch for pkgdb that prioritises the themes that
are used when choosing an icon. That should be enough to always choose
a proper icon for displaying alongside firefox.

Patch attached and applied to app and bapp servers.


applied to app07 after rebuild.

Packagedb 0.5.4 with this code now deployed in production.
