Right. That change should have been checked in by now, so doing a cvs
update should get you the fix to Mailman/Handlers/ToUsenet.py

The should be! Take a look at
and you should find PythonPowered.png, gnu-head-tiny.jpg, and
mailman.jpg which are the three logos.

Why yuck? My dilemma was this: PythonPowered.gif is purposefully
transparent around the edges of the oval, but we can't use gifs
because Mailman is Gnu. I'd have preferred jpegs for consistency, but
I couldn't figure out how to make the transparency work (I don't think
jpeg supports transparencies). png seemed the only compromise, and
converting from gif to png was made easy by Eric Raymond's tool.
The downsides I see are support for png in browsers. NS 4.7 and MSIE
5.x both support pngs, but only MSIE supports transparent pngs (so if
you change your background to other than white, it won't look nice).
I'm open to suggestions, but this seems to me to be the best
compromise as long as gifs are verboten.
