We should be proud of our corporate relationships, and advertise them on a separate page linked from the top. Please create something. Logos for Nexenta, Joyent, Reliant, Greenbytes, Berlios, SchilliX, and Belenix should be included.

Who is the giraffe? If someone tells me, I might wrap some text around this ...


Updated by Andre van Eyssen over 10 years ago

  • Priority changed from High to Normal

(major sponsors covered, downgrading priority to normal)


Updated by Garrett D'Amore over 10 years ago

The giraffe is the Nexenta Core Platform (think totally open source core) logo. Its the logo for the distro, vs. the logo for the Nexenta corporate identity.


Updated by andrew k7 over 10 years ago

There is a typo in the page (companies/orgnaization) and this use of a slash looks clunky. Suggest rewording as follows:

"The Illumos project thanks the following companies and organizations for their support of the Illumos project infrastructure."

Also I don't see a link to this page. Suggest one be added to the top navbar (Home | Wiki | Forums ...).

I'll fix this Monday if not somebody else has before then...


Updated by Jeppe Toustrup over 10 years ago

I have changed the text on the page as suggested, and added links to the websites of the various companies and projects.


Updated by Garrett D'Amore over 10 years ago

I've changed "Illumos Projects" to "Ilumos Community Partners". We need to also add a logo for Greenviolet. Matt Lewandosky (lewellyn) can provide a logo if needed.

I would alter the text for sponsorship to just say:

We thank the following for their sponsorship of the Illumos effort.



Updated by Jeppe Toustrup over 10 years ago

I thought about changing the "Illumos Projects" text as well, but to "Projects using Illumos", but since that would not be true I left it at what it was.

Greenviolet has been added to the page, and I have moved all logos into tables, which may them stand more orderly, imo.
I have also added text links underneath each logo, in order to get some names on the logos which don't have text. It may look a bit redundant for some companies/projects, but I thought it would be best to make it consistent.

Since I don't have access to uploading files to the 'site' project, I added the Greenviolet logo as an attachment to the wiki page. This makes a link to the file in the bottom of the page, which doesn't really look that well placed. Anybody with access to move/reupload the file to the file repository along with the other logos, feel free to do so.

Lastly, we should probably get some links pointing into the page, but from where? The top bar or maybe the frontpage?

Thanks for your help, Jesse.

I've granted wiki editors the right to upload files. You can upload the file under files, and link to it now.



Updated by Jeppe Toustrup over 10 years ago

Okay, thanks. I have updated the image URL to point at the image uploaded to the files section. I do however not have rights to delete the attached image again, that is a separate permission it seems:
So if the attached image just gets deleted, then all we need is links pointing to the page.

Btw, my name is Jeppe, not Jesse ;)

  • Assignee deleted (Jeppe Toustrup)

I have removed myself as assignee, since I don't have access to change either the frontpage or menu bar to link to the page.


Updated by Garrett D'Amore about 10 years ago

  • Assignee set to Captain Administrator
  • Priority changed from Normal to Immediate

Ok, this is down right embarrassing!!!!

I'm sick and tired of the sponsors panel being so screwed up. Its disrespectful to our partners.

Anil, please fix this asap!

Fixed. Smaller logos uploaded, and the format shifted to a 3x3 table. Set at 90% .. can be closed unless the view is still screwed up.



Updated by Bryan Horstmann-Allen over 9 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Difficulty set to Medium
  • Random Text Field set to Bogus
  • Tags set to needs-triage

View is not screwed up. Closing.
