Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1009162
remove/reduce dependency on fedora logos
Last modified: 2013-11-10 02:35:35 EST
If you start from a minimal image and install httpd, it's about 10MB, 87% of which is fedora-logos. I understand this is probably used in the default content, but if we could split that out, it'd be faster for people provisioning Fedora with httpd inside their container or vm.
Hah! There must be an appropriate saying here...
"For want of a generic representation of a metallic object used for fixing other objects together... the kingdom became full of bloat."
Split out poweredby.png from system-logos, or let me revert the fix for bug 250676 :)
If it's this much of a problem... do we really need the image in the page? Or have a generic one instead of a branded one?
Or split the httpd package like:
1) httpd -> metapackage, Requires the two packages below
2) httpd-server (guess what goes in here)
3) httpd-defaultpage (the onyl package to Require fedora-logos)
(or whatever naming you prefer)
Should be easy enough and people who want to avoid fedora-logos can only just install httpd-server instead of httpd. Others simply stick with httpd.
just an idea :)
Is there a reason this image isn't just hosted on fedoraproject.org and linked to?
Externally linked from a filesystem location allows for easy rebranding (local or otherwise)... moving to an externally hosted file less so. Also less likely to cause issues on private networks, etc.
But we could just remove the image from the test page. Do we really need that level of branding these days?
Seriously, it's one tiny PNG file. This was not complicated until we (cough) decided to make it complicated. And now "we made this too complicated" is not a good reason from dropping the tiny PNG file. If you don't want to split out fedora-logos then let's put the tiny PNG file back in httpd.
Putting the PNG file back in httpd is fine... as long as it doesn't have Fedora branding.
The tiny PNG file does have Fedora branding - that is the point of the tiny PNG file. I can either close this out or re-assign to fedora-logos to request that package is split so the tiny PNG file has a separate tiny subpackage... I'm happy either way! :)
I am in favor of any of these three:
1. package sample content separately from httpd itself
2. subpackage fedora-logos so a smaller subset can be used (maybe that smaller subset could be shared by most packages that don't need the large logos)
3. remove the graphic from the sample content so no logo is needed at all
I think (2) is the most reasonable solution; re-assigning to fedora-logos.
I've split out fedora-logos-httpd as a subpackage with poweredby.png in f20 and rawhide. Please update httpd in f20 and rawhide to have the correct Requires and then push them both together as an update for f20.
The builds are: fedora-logos-19.0.4-4.fc20 & fedora-logos-21.0.0-1.fc21
Reassigning to httpd to finish off.
