Devuan websites need a makeover for Daedalus

Greetings fellow travelers!

The next Devuan stable release, Daedalus, is on the horizon and it is time to recolor the Devuan websites to mirror the signature Sapphire theme color palette. It has been a great ride for me through 5 Devuan releases but it is time to pass the torch.

The Devuan websites have always reflected the signature colors of the current Devuan stable release default desktop. It requires changing the hexes in the CSS for all 4 of them as well as recoloring a few icons. Here is the list of websites needing attention:
https://www.devuan.org/
https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/policy-query.html
https://bugs.devuan.org/
https://popcon.devuan.org/

The color palette of the Daedalus Sapphire desktop theme is here:
https://git.devuan.org/devuan/documenta … s-sapphire

If you are interested in taking on this task, I will be available to walk you through the process.

If no one steps up, the website(s) colors will remain on the Chimaera Deep Sea theme for the duration.

Finally a shout-out to all of you for so kindly supporting my colorful efforts as I have muddled my way though the theming process over the years.

The current color scheme is perfect. And as the saying goes, If it is not broken, don't change it.

Quite so.
golinux did a truly excellent job.

Can't think of a valid reason to change it.

Just my $0.02, of course.

Best,

A.

Then you haven't been paying attention. wink All I know is that the torch has been passed and time will tell . . .
