moving notes.png?

I would like to "translate" the image moving.png. It is now located in the images/common folder. Is it possible to move it to a folder in the images/C folder without rewriting lots of po/xml sides? Or is there another way to "translate" it? Kolbjørn

Why that?

May be using the "ln -s" command to create a symbolic link?

There is an English text ("note") in this image. In Norwegian "note" is a musical note. It could also mean a foot note or a note from one government to another government.
Another reason is that I thought other languages has the same problem. Perhaps I'm wrong.

Some years ago we had problems with symbolic links as Windows XP and older could not handle them. I do not know if newer versions are able to do that.
I'll give it a look.
Thank you for answering.

I better understand the problem (that does not exist in French).

I think the only wise solution is to replace this icon with a neutral graphism, something like the attached one (I am not an artist).

Artist or not is a question of definition :-) I think you are right that this is the best solution. If peoples in this list agree, I'll replace the original with your suggestion.
Btw: Windows 7 and newer handles symbolic links. Kolbjørn

We have many users on the Windows XP platform, apparently.

Please do not make the docs use file-system-level links, if possible - these already make deployment on docs.gimp.org more complicated than it should be.

No, I have no plans to use a symbolic link in this case. It was an answer to one of Julien's comments.
I go for Julien's suggestion: redesigning the icon.

I know a joke about UDP, but you might not get it.
