SB> Latest iterations (ia32, and x86_64):

SB> http://ftp.linuxfoundation.org/pub/lsb/appliances/app-checker/

SB> I just arbitrarily picked this directory. They can be moved wherever.

SB> Builders are setup on the build machines to be able to turn the crank on 
SB> these fairly easily. Build pulls the current app-checker pieces from the 
SB> 4.0 repos to install in the VM.
SB> Could probably use a bit more automation yet, but the script does the 
SB> right things per arch and lets you version the build. I versioned the VM 
SB> to track the app-checker version.

SB> LF Logo on the splash screen looks a little lame. I tried converting the 
SB> white background to transparent and it looked even worse. The very thin 
SB> lines in "THE" and "FOUNDATION" seem to be part of the problem. I do 
SB> have a request in to Dan/Craig for a clean logo with a transparent 
SB> background. I have the necessary branding src.rpms prepared to be able 
SB> to rework this part as desired.

SB> I ran both archs enough to boot and see the app checker in firefox and 
SB> go back and tweak tux's env a bit to de-brand things. Send bug reports 
SB> to me, the list, or bugzilla.

Concerning the splash screen: blue letters on blue background would hardly look
nice. Maybe, just smooth the borders? I drew a simple example of how it could
look (see the attached picture).
