> Hi there!
> Exciting copy + paste from Launchpad Bug #554976, via the UI freeze
> exception process :)
> https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/554976
> I am proposing a set of modifications to the visuals for the
> ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu package. (Slideshow that plays in the
> Ubiquity installer when installing Ubuntu).
> Some of these changes spring from bug #552510, which covers centring
> the icons used in the slideshow, but there are a few other changes as
> well.
> These are currently seen in lp:ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu, revisions
> 260 to 261. (Sorry, jumped the gun a bit; I should have made a
> separate branch. Oh well).
> You can see a preview at
> http://people.ubuntu.com/~dylanmccall/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu/
> First the CSS layout change:
>  * Title block is slightly narrower. Before, the title could flow
> right up to the icon at the top right before wrapping to the next
> line. That is no longer the case; it now wraps much earlier in the
> line so there isn't so much visual noise up there. This means
> multi-line titles should (hopefully) wrap a bit more elegantly.
>  * Increased spacing between individual lines.
>  * Increased width of content; text is as far from the edge on the
> right as it is on the left side. This appears to nullify the net
> effect of the increased line spacing.
> Then the icons:
>  * The new personalize.png replaces the old accessibility icon. It is
> the "Change wallpaper" icon from the Humanity set. I decided this
> appealed to the idea of personalizing the desktop to fit one's
> personal wishes, where the previous icon provided a rather clinical
> feeling. The dash of aubergine gives the topic a nice jolt of life.
>  * New media.png replacing the Rhythmbox icon. There were a lot of
> comments about the out of place Breathe icon, and it was somewhat
> difficult to align it elegantly. (Rhythmbox icons are all rather
> rectangular, the others we have are square. It looked funny). I went
> with the generic Media category icon from the Humanity set because
> it's one of the more pretty looking icons in that genre by default,
> and it is an icon people will recognize when they open the
> Applications menu.
> Thank you!
> Dylan McCall

I understand that there are no string changes and for translators this
is simply a notification of the changes, so I'd say +1 from the
translations side.
