Yes, Sr., I am. My intention is to have these changes ready in their
repos the next Monday or Tuesday.

FYC: The CentOS Stream 9 distribution (desktop) isn't presenting the
backgrounds yet, nor the correct visual information in the browser's
default web page; although they are both available in the respective
source repos. These are major issues if we want to avoid visual
"disconnection" between websites and distribution.

This is a 5x5 "Go". So, resuming the actions to be done:

1. Update centos-logos and centos-indexhtml source repos to include the
new logo and update the browser default web page's content. With these
changes in place, the next compose should produce the packages with the
logo and we will see it in the distribution after running the "dnf
update" command or installing directly the new ISO file.

2. Check the distribution is aligned with its visual presentation (it
provides both new logo and desktop backgrounds).

3. Work with Fabian to align the website presentation.
