Description

The OSM favicon (https://maps.wikimedia.org/favicon.ico) seems to be displayed only on maps.wikimedia.org.

Notes for future reference: this file lives at https://github.com/kartotherian/server/blob/master/static/favicon.ico and is referenced from index.html in the same directory. maps.wikimedia.org is mapped to kartotherian.discovery.wmnet which resolves to a kartotherian backend via DNS Discovery.

Also, considering the image Kartotherian is using as its favicon is an official OSM logo subject to its trademark policy, for as long as we continue to use it, we should include a notice as specified in the policy in some appropriate location:

[Wordmark / name of logo] is a trademark of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, and is used with their permission. [We / this product / this project] are not endorsed by or affiliated with the OpenStreetMap Foundation.

@Abbe98: A good first task is a self-contained, non-controversial task with a clear approach. It's unclear to me where to find the codebase for this task, so I'm removing the good first task tag. Please feel free to add sufficient details for a new contributor, and then add back the good first task project tag. Thanks a lot!

So what favicon should we show ? generic wikimedia ? wikimedia+map icon ?
