Turns out I never added it to the artwork repo. Yikes!

When used on top of a dark background, this variant should be used.

Alternatively, in monochrome print a version of this logo, with the same
gradients serving as shadows should be used. (E.g. change #fff to #000)

The PNG has been pre-rendered at a high resolution.

I was not able to verify that Adobe tools wouldn't have issues with this PDF:

Hey @samueldr, I recently came upon this pull request and realized it could be really helpful to me.
We need artwork for gdm and plymouth (I'm currently in the process of updating us to the bgrt theme).
Here's an actual example: https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/hansdegoede/13347631/433/433_900.png, and a mockup https://gitlab.gnome.org/Teams/Design/os-mockups/-/blob/master/boot/boot-progress.png.
Do you think it would be ideal to use this white variant logo in the bootsplash and in gdm?
We're currently using https://raw.githubusercontent.com/NixOS/nixos-artwork/4f041870efa1a6f0799ef4b32bb7be2cafee7a74/logo/nixos.svg, and I'm not sure if we should just add a version of that with white text instead?

Yes, please use the white logo on a dark background.

I already know what BGRT is, and +1 for implementing it.

Also: why the heck did I never merge this?
