  • Haiku Compatible Logo

    v9 v10  
     13= DRAFT Guidelines on Logo use =
     15this is an attempt to define a process to allow software to use this logo.
     17The idea is a lot of software is either obsolete and running only on BeOS ; or weakly ported and using unixish style stuff. We want to avoid that, so the idea is to allow software to use this logo if it fits the guidelines.
     19= What rules should software follow =
     20 * It should work on the latest stable release of Haiku
     21 * It should work on gcc2 hybrid - other flavours of Haiku may be ignored
     22 * Only the x86,gcc2hybrid version of software may get the logo - other flavours must not use it
     23 * configuration files should go in home/config/settings; and the path should be obtained by the appropriate functions & constants, not hardcoded.
     24 * The app must not write anything to the hard disk except in its own directory (/boot/app/appName, or whatever the user installed it), the configuration directories (home/config/settings, common/), unless the user explicitly asks for it (a save dialog is a good example).
     25 * We can add other rules here...
     27 * HIG compliance ?
     29= Similar documents elsewhere =
     30 * Apple App Store Review Guidelines
     32= Process for allowing logo use =
     33who should give the authorization for using the logo ? Haiku,Inc. ? The developpers ?
     34The rules should be simple enough so that we don't need a dev to check for them. But has the inc. resources for testing apps out ?
