Hi Jim and all,

FYI:

I just added a graphic for the about dialog which is now used when you
build a Developer Snapshot:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk/main/ooo_custom_images/dev/introabout/about.png

Additionally I will try to make a special graphic for the Start Center
(similar to a Beta build)

Regards,

   Matthias
