cleanup latest blueprints on launchpad

Asked by Eric Le Lay on 2019-02-05

On https://launchpad.net/inkscape in section "Latest Blueprints" I see what I understand is advertisement for drugs.
Most likely spammers. Can someone remove them?

Thanks,

Yeah... You can make a bug report about that at https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad if it bothers you....

Those blueprints aren't being used by the project anymore, and the bug tracker is in the process of being moved to gitlab.

What was your intention with the blueprints? Maybe we can point you to a better place.

I happened to land on https://launchpad.net/inkscape because it was the featured project on the month.

Maybe nobody with admin rights on the project was aware of the fact that they had spam in their landing page.
So I reported it, if you wanted to clean it up.
I've opened https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/1814809 on launchpad itself as recommended.

Thanks,

Funny, we're moving away from launchpad and they make us a featured project of the month...

Where can we find this? Google didn't return much for my search .... :-(

Thank you for notifying them about the spammers.

Sorry about the false alarm: I misread "featured project" as "project of the month", which is a sourceforge thing.
The inkscape logo appears on https://launchpad.net/ in "FEATURED PROJECTS" with a big icon and description.

Ah, no problem. Yes, that's a bit unfortunate. I've asked the maintainer if we could maybe change the project description to help with these cases. Thanks for reporting back!
