As far as I know, Emily still has it. This has been discussed at
various points while I've been on the board and I'm not entirely sure
what the current status is. It's possible that we decided that the box
is too big to be practical, but I might be wrong about that.

I'd like to encourage people to use the colours in the draft brand
guidelines. There was a fair amount of work put into these, and it's
important that we use consistent branding wherever possible.

The fact that they're in Github is probably down to two factors:

 1. Github is where we keep source files and in-development work for design
 2. While I would like to encourage people to follow the guidelines,
they're still a bit rough in places and need to be finished. Once
that's happened we'll probably have a PDF on GNOME infrastructure

There are various historical reasons for 1, including technical
limitations of GNOME infrastructure. With the shift to Gitlab those
might be resolved, and we're experimenting with using it for future
design work.
