Description of problem:
In order to stay competitive with the upcoming release of Microsoft
WindowsXP, RedHat Linux will absolutely require this very important
feature: A Rubber Duck user icon available by default for the gdm login screen.
Please discontinue any work on inferior features (IPv6 for example) ASAP,
and make sure the icon is available by the release for RH8.

Thank you.

Ohh!  re-assign it to Legacy!  I could totally see this as a security issue.

Indeed, it's very critical... :)

I propose this one, it's always better that the window's one!

We have gothDuck in the -extras package now, so I guess this is not that
pressing anymore.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-27 00:13:46 EDT
Fixed in gdm-extra-faces-2.20.1-5.fc8.
