This bug requires restructuring of the data for tems to acomodate the mugshot, there is no hotlinking from launchpad the lauchpad api's serve the binary file to be open. this suggests that we should import the files just as we do with the rest of the data.

taken from the API reference for launchpad.

Hosted files

Launchpad stores some data in the form of binary files. A good example is peoples' mugshots. With launchpadlib, you can read and write these binary files programatically.

If you have a launchpadlib reference to one of these hosted files, you can read its data by calling the open() method and treating the result as an open filehandle.

    mugshot =
    mugshot_handle =
    # [binary data]
    # 'image/jpeg'
    # 'Wed, 12 Mar 2008 21:47:05 GMT'

Cna you think of a workaround for this?

In trunk I think I get two overlapping logos now.

This bug is marged as "Triaged" - where do things stand right now? :)

Martin Owens (doctormo) wrote :

The overlapping logos are because the "missing image" logo is set as a background to the containing box in css. The logo on top which is the "found" logo is transparent.

It is transparent for you with current trunk?

Also... isn't this bug 'fix committed' already?

Dave Walker (davewalker) wrote :

No, "Trunk" doesn't require the background via css. Trunk is aware if the team has a mugshot or not, and handles it without requiring a default static image.

I have the problem with trunk and a newly created database.
