Subject Re: promoting apache

Brian Behlendorf pointed out to me a problem with my apache_pb.gif: It 
uses 168 colors, which could be a problem on computers that can only 
display 256 colors at once - this doesn't leave very many colors left 
over for other images on the page. Which can be a problem.

So I've created a new image, at, which
uses only 32 colors. It's 2326 bytes, for those who care about such
things. And unlike apb.gif, it actually looks pretty good. Maybe ever
better than apache_pb.gif.

So I'd like to suggest that apache_pb.gif be replaced with my new one 
where appropriate (esp on the Apache page) - they look almost identical*, 
so no one will notice the difference.

Also, it should probably go into the icons directory of the next Apache 
release, so it's easily accessable for webmasters to use.


* Note that the new one is 1 pixel shorter, so adjust HEIGHT attributes as
  appropriate. It's the same width.
