Subject Re: 4.1.4 blockers (Was: Re: Release 4.1.3 (4.1.4))

Obviously nobody looks at the splash screen, since the wrong URL has
been there for about 4 years now... ;-)
(When the splash screen was redesigned, the same URL was put in it again)
So I think now it is time for a change and to close this bug.

The ASF logos are also visible during installation on Windows (I can't
verify for macOS, but those graphics have also been updated).
I (and hopefully others) tested the Windows build for several month now.
In fact I am using 4.1.4 on a daily base at work.
For testing the Intro/About I simply copied the new graphics over the
existing ones in OpenOffice/program folder.

So from my POV the risk is minimal to non-existent.
