Logos '''must''' have a vector graphics source (SVG preferred), but '''must''' be uploaded in a bitmap format (transparent PNG preferred). A good, free software vector graphics application which can handle SVG and PNG exports is [http://www.inkscape.org/ inkscape]. The dimensions are up to you as long as the images scale well. In order for your logo to be used, the logo itself must be free content with a reduced attribution requirement, but we can work this out with you once we have picked your logo.

 +
To get debug symbols for Inkscape, you'll probably need to recompile it. We use cmake and it has a Debug mode which produces debugging symbols:
  
To participate, [[Special:Userlogin|create an account]] and [[Special:Upload|upload your logos]]. A deadline will be announced once we have a better feel for how many submissions to expect. The [[moderators]] act as a jury.
+
cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../
 +
This assumes that you're building everything in a build folder and the repository root is the parent directory.
  
Why participate? Your logo may end up being used on millions of works large and small, giving you exposition and recognition. You will be fully acknowledged on this website as the artist. We may also announce prizes during the course of the contest.
+
If you're looking an older non-cmake version, you'll need to enable the CXXFLAGS manually.
  
Some advice and ideas:
+
Debugging with GDB
* Don't make it too complex. See the Wikipedia article [[w:logo|logo]] for some information on what makes a good logo.
+
To start debugging Inkscape with GDB, load it up:
* It's all about works being used freely, merged, copied, changed, and so on. A visual metaphor that reflects this may make the most sense.

gdb path/to/inkscape
 +
If you want Inkscape to start right away and your version of GDB is new enough, you can start it with
  
''Please note:'' it was recently decided to [[Talk:Definition/Unstable#Pushing_to_1.0|drop]] the term "Free Expression" because it was too ambiguous in our context. Thus, we don't need two different logos anymore, only a "Free Content" logo.
+
gdb path/to/inkscape -ex r
 +
To keep gdb from paginating (splitting output from commands into pages, makes creating backtraces for bug reports more difficult) you can put this in ~/.gdbinit:
  
== New Creative Commons Logos ==
+
set pagination off
 +
To use GDB's text UI, you can run gdb -tui or gdbtui.
  
Please, have a look at new logos proposed for CC. They are not official CC logos (yet)  [http://x.narya.net/static/terry/cc_colors.png but may be in a future] [[User:JaroslawLipszyc|JaroslawLipszyc]] 14:59, 8 June 2006 (CEST)

When the program crashes you might see something like this:

respectively, to indicate that this is a global movement; the open shapes are somewhat informed by the copyright "C", which is, in a way, subverted to express fluidity and constant change.
+
0x0000000000000000 in ??
 +
(gdb)
 +
To find out where the crash occurred (you might not always be able to), you should run:
  
[[Image:Swirly-logo-black.png|150px|]] [[Image:Swirly-logo-color.png|150px|]]

(gdb) backtrace

(If you have the same crash in a debugger better suited to your platform, you can use select frame to specify the address if GDB cannot find it.)
  
===Yin Yang===

Now you have activated frame 2. You can see the state of the processor registers in frame 2 and any local variables that the compiler has embedded in the debug symbols.
"Yin Yang" by Bernhard Schillo. The shape of the logo is one half of the yin and yang symbol. I believe, this is a good basis for this logo, cause it symbolizes contradictions, which generate reality. In this case the "C" (for Culture) coexists with the "uncultured" nature. Or another possible connotation: free culture and not free culture. Human culture of property can't exist without the "seed" of free culture contained in itself and without a strong free culture on the opposition. The forces have to work together.
 
The Logo also reminds to the Copyright-Logo. But the circle around the "C" is not a circle. The shape indicates, that something is given back.  
 
  
The logo should be elaborated if used. These are just my first ideas and drafts. I will think about it again when the discussion about the name is finished. And i hope, my english is understandable :)

Stepping execution and breakpoints
 +
Sometimes, you would like to be in control of program execution instead of just letting it run wildly.
  
== Free Content Logo ==
+
You can tell GDB to stop when it reaches a certain function, upon a certain condition, or when a value in memory changes. These are known as breakpoints and watchpoints.
  
[[Image:Free3.png|left|Logo|thumb]][[Image:Freex.png|left|Logo|thumb]][[Image:glob.png|left|Logo|thumb]]
+
Stopping when a function is called:
  
<br clear="both">
+
(gdb) break Inkscape::UI::Tools::SelectTool::root_handler
 +
Breakpoint 1 at 0xf64ab7: file ../../src/ui/tools/select-tool.cpp, line 460.
 +
Stopping if any exception is thrown:
  
== Marc Falzon's logo ==
+
(gdb) catch throw
 +
Catchpoint 2 (throw)
 +
Stopping if a condition is met:
  
[[Image:Mfalzon-freecontent logo01--normal.png|left|Free content (01), by Marc Falzon - full size]]
+
(gdb) break ../../src/ui/tools/select-tool.cpp:629 if group_at_point == 0
Here is another logo proposal to illustrate the Free content idea : I made it with Inkscape, so the SVG source file is available.
+
Breakpoint 3 at 0xf657a5: file ../../src/ui/tools/select-tool.cpp, line 629.
 +
Stopping when a memory value changes:
  
[[Image:Mfalzon-freecontent logo01--typ.png|right|Alternative fonts for logo Free content (01)]]

Listing breakpoints:
  
The rings - using the universal colors of the rainbow - represent some pieces of content (''free'' content illustrated by the "open" part) intertwined. For the label, I also provide some alternative fonts : the jury is free to choose another one in this list to replace the original font.

Disabling breakpoints:
  
A "wiki logo" size version of my logo : [[Image:Mfalzon-freecontent logo01--wikilogo.png|Free content (01), by Marc Falzon - wiki logo size]]
+
(gdb) disable 4
 +
Deleting breakpoints:
  
Then a "browser-icon" size, for use as ''favicon'' : [[Image:Mfalzon-freecontent logo01--favicon.png|Free content (01), by Marc Falzon - favicon size]]
+
(gdb) delete 3

Creating breakpoints that will only be stopped on once:

If GDB can figure out what you are talking about, it can print pretty much anything. GDB also is immune to the private boundary of a class.

A handy feature to try to determine if a heap object still exists (hasn't been delete()d yet) is to use the new GDB command info vtbl:
  
: I love it! This is definitely the nicest one so far. From the fonts, I think I prefer the third one from the top. However, we should make sure that the fonts we use are available under free licenses. Could you do a grayscale version of the logo part so we know if it's suitable for print?--[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]] 00:08, 25 July 2006 (CEST)

This is a rough draft of an idea for a 'freedom of expression' logo by Mark Clements (registered as HappyDog).  A better paint-palette shape would be nice, and maybe a photographic image rather than the basic vector image I have used here. In fact, having said that I uploaded a quick mock-up with a photographic 'cloud' image.  Not great, but any image could be used if this was thought to be a good direction to go in. --[[User:HappyDog|Mark Clements (HappyDog)]] 02:35, 6 July 2006 (CEST)

: This is pretty, though perhaps a little too strong visually. I'd prefer something more abstract which can be used equally well for art, music, scientific data, encyclopedic articles, and so on.--[[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]]
 
 
 
::I like the "yin yang" proposal above very much. Perhaps it is a little too naked right now, but it can probably be elaborated upon by a skilled person (perhaps the author himself) ;-)) I think the basic graphical concept is simple, clear and rather adequate. --[[User:Antoine|Antoine]] 16:12, 14 July 2006 (CEST)

Invitation to artists: add "Libre" logos/emblems to this page. 
 
Note: the proposed change from "Free" to "Libre" to disambiguate "free".
 
Libre can apply to free/libre culture, free/libre knowledge, free/libre software, etc. - or in fact any [http://communities.libre.org/ libre resources].
 
 
 
Also, feel free to contribute/discuss alternative language versions (e.g. 自由, etc.).
