[GRASS-dev] New splash screen for GRASS GIS 7?

Happy to help for ISIS banner modification,
we first need a main banner though.

What are the working options so far? Is there a consensus on something we
can submit now as a first try?

I am happy to give a +1 to Vincent's banner most people preferred (see
earlier emails), and we modify it once or twice according to reactions on
this discussion.

Comments anyone?
