[Bug 1483914] Re: libreoffice-style-elementary as alternate to libreoffice-style-human


<Sweet5hark> dholbach: soo, releasing the theme independant from LibreOffice will likely get messy with different versions and people having the theme from one archive and LibreOffice from another (e.g. from PPAs). Thus I would love to have this upstream.
 dholbach: (see tdf#92458)
 dholbach: I'd love to help with that as time allows. https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92458#c1 is the relevant piece there: We'd need the license statement-foo from the authors and look at the stuff being clean from an IP PoV. Probably best we get the git history into the LibreOffice core repo and get a license statement from the authors.
<ubot5> bugs.documentfoundation.org bug 92458 in UI "Integrate the “elementary” theme into LibreOffice" [Normal,New]
<Sweet5hark> dholbach: the git stuff should be doable reasonably easy with some git filter-branch foo, I will try to find time for that.
<Sweet5hark> dholbach: (getting the commits into the LibreOffice core repo has the added benefit of creating LibreOffice authoring credits for the theme creators ...)
<Sweet5hark> dholbach: beyond that: the debdiff in bug seems rather superfluous to me: No need to recommend -elementary -- we dont do that with e.g. the sifr or breeze themes either. We recommend -human to have it in the default install, we recommend -tango because ... well, actually we dont need to. We do as Debian (which doesnt have -human)  does that.
<Sweet5hark> dholbach: ;)
<Sweet5hark> <- just won an action item
 achievement unlocked, I guess.
<dholbach> Sweet5hark, I'm just going through the sponsoring queue and trying to get as many done or looked at as possible
<Sweet5hark> dholbach: right. nothing to sponsor here, the debdiff isnt what we'd want.
<dholbach> I'll unsubscribe the u-sponsors team then
