Localise Creative Commons logo on w.org/privacy

Description

On w.org/privacy, the Creative Commons logo is being hot-linked from creativecommons.org. There's no benefit that I can think of, only downsides (privacy, cross-domain requests, can't cache)

Does it need to be "localized" in a specific manner, or will simply copying the image onto the w.org system and linking to that instead be fine?

I would also like to bump the link up to 4.0 of that license, if nobody has any objections?

Thanks @Otto42 yes downloading the image to the server should suffice.

Awesome that sounds like a good idea. not sure you'll get objections here. Maybe open a trac ticket for that change to prompt objections and discussion.

Cheers

The reason for the 4.0 is that it has better license wording across more jurisdictions, and is also GPL-Compatible. The intent and result is the same, so no issues in updating it.

Also, this image is nicer, so, probably should use that:

About: Update Privacy and Privacy-Cookies page to link to use s.w.org CDN for CC-BY-SA 4.0 image. Update Privacy page to link to 4.0 version of the license (privacy-cookies already linked there). Fixes #4141

You rock @Otto42 thanks for the quick turn around there. And that's great about 4.0 being GPL-Compatible.
