Could we use the signature "D" in Devuan

Hello all..! And Devuan Team
Over at Peppermint OS we are getting ready to ship two ISO's 64bit and 32bit (Currently in testing phase)
And.....for the Calamares installer we would like to use a branding that includes the signature Devuan "D" for our slide backgrounds.
That would look something like this:

Is that something  we could get permission to do?

We have not implemented the  above image, but the goal is.... we would like to distinguish the Debian builds from the Devuan builds, and we would like to show support for Devuan where possible 

If anyone is interested in what we are doing please visit our current code base is here:
https://codeberg.org/Peppermint_OS

And have a look at the two devuan repos.

Really appreciate your guys support. I personally have had  many conversations with  you all here in the forums....
Since picking up PeppermintOS after Mark Greaves (Previous Lead dev) passed a few years back.
These discussions have helped the team map a new road for PeppermintOS for the future..

I bumped the request up to our traveling guru at dyne.org. Be patient. He moves faster than email.

I got a brief answer from Jaromil: "yes why not"

What does the logo for the debian build look like? I tried to find it, but failed. Or maybe the examples I saw were too small.

@fsmithred - this is great news!  Thank you so much! -

Here is blown up version of the watermark

yeah... we did not put the Debian logo in there... we stuck with the classic peppermintos logo
no particular reason....
honestly I don't think it would fit as nicely as the Devuan "D" does.

I gotta say though.....we wrote a lot of tkinter/python/pyqt with ttkboostrap... code for our distro specific things...
It was a lift and shift Debian to Devuan easy day everything custom we wrote worked no issue at all.. 
Even our Calamares Configs transferred with  very minimum changes needed.

The live-build was the same very minimum changes needed from our Debian to Devuan
We did take a vote and the team decided to go with sysV

Really good work that you guys do....!

I'm confused . . . maybe it's my old eyes . . . or maybe I don't understand what a watermark is . . . or maybe I need special xray glasses?

The watermark is barely visible in the gray field. It's the round peppermint candy. (And now I want one. Or a candy cane, but they're all gone.)

This was posted as being the watermark.  No peppermint candy there.  Just text on a dark background.  I do keep my brightness at 65% and contrast at 75% though . . .

Yes I think there was a mistake on that link;
the OP had this link: https://imgur.com/8MA5SQK which does include the "swosh"

Yeah, I saw that up top.  A bit too murky imo but at least marginally visible.  Thankfully not my problem . . .  big_smile
