it uses the old start-here icon, rather than a shadowman.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product Management has requested further review

Shadowman Start icons for RHEL...sizes include 16, 24, 32, 48, 96.
dfong/mclasen: I believe older releases, e.g. RHEL4, uses a more cartoony hat as
shown here (picture randomly found on the Internet but ya'll probably remember)
Are you sure we want to use the more flat Shadowman icon for RHEL5?
david, fyi: the panel is using the icon named "start-here" for the menu now
(which is why the old icon resurfaced)
mclasen: so, why not simply fix the panel to use the an icon from redhat-logos
instead of, uhm, replacing the start-here icon with a Shadowman? Cuz, really,
I'm not how much sense it makes to make the icon named "start-here" a Shadowman,
in a way you're breaking at least some sort of ABI etc. etc.
FYI redhat-logos contains
which looks similar to the icons that Diana did though the red is somewhat more
vivid in her icons.
I'm fine with fixing this in the panel. The new icons are uptodate wrt to the
brand guidelines. Please replace the outdated existing ones.
OK, reassigning this to redhat-logos and fixing up Summary to reflect that
shadowman icons in redhat-logos needs an update. New shadowman icons are
available in comment 2.
mclasen: Please open a new bug for the panel fix.
Taking ownership of this bug (since johnp is no longer with us).

shadowman icons that needs update
dfong: We need updated icons for the ones in the attached archive file
shadowman-200.png shadowman-64.png shadowman-round-48.png
shadowman-32.png shadowman-64.xpm shadowman-round-48.xpm
shadowman-32.xpm shadowman-mini.png shadowman-round-mini.xpm
shadowman-48.png shadowman-mini.xpm shadowman-transparent.png
dfong: in addition we also need
as redhat-artwork will symlink into these to provided themed icons for the gnome
Actually as dfong pointed out this morning the existing shadowman
(shadownman-<size>.[png|xpm]]) are not transparent so they are not usable. So
the plan of attack is
1. Fixup existing icons in redhat-logos
2. Provide new icons shadowman-transparent-<size>.png where size=16, 20, 22,
32, 36, 48, 64, 96
then we get redhat-artwork to symlink into the shadowman-transparent-<size.png
(further, we don't want to make the existing shadownman-<size>.[png|xpm] icons
transparent as that could break existing stuff)
Sounds good to me; although we should still update the existing non-transparent
shadowmen to the current approved version
re comment 13, yea, that's what I meant with bullet 1. in comment 11

Transparent Shadowmans in 16, 20, 22, 24, 32, 36, 48, 64, 96
I verified these packages on Zack's x86 RHEL5 box and they looked good
What version of redhat-* is this fixed in? And which shadowman should be on the
Zack, see comment 9, comment 10 and comment 17. Thanks.
Oh, now I see the package versions. Thanks.
But the PNGs mentioned in comment 10 are not present in either redhat-logos or
redhat-artwork. Is this a problem?
Either way, the shadowman I'm seeing on the panel is round with a white face,
and a transparent border. Sound right?
Sounds right. Mmm... perhaps rpmdiff can tell the files that changed? /me can't
seem to recall them at this point, sorry.
Well, redhat-artwork isn't symlinking to any shadoman-* files. Does this mean we
don't need the files in comment 10?
Mmmm.. I can't remember the specifics, sorry.
A package has been built which should help the problem described in
this bug report. This report is therefore being closed with a resolution
of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the solution does
not work for you.
