Máirín, I remember us talking about this in the past and concluding that we
should improve the guidelines to include a logo suitable for dark backgrounds. A
good candidate could be the logo already located at
`/usr/share/gdm/themes/Bluecurve/rh_logo-header.png`, which looks OK on dark but
also on light backgrounds because of the drop shadow.

I can't seem to remember receiving any replies about this issue from the people
responsible for this matter and I tried to find their names/emails on the wiki
(and the recipients of the `logo` email alias), but with no luck (we should
really put them on the wiki).

Max mentioned in his last mail that "everything in Fedora takes a long time",
and we can fix this "just by continuing to push through barriers when they come
up". So we have a barrier here that needs to be pushed.
