Wow... "krita git" leads to

https://www.kde.org/applications/graphics/krita/development

Which I didn't even knew existed and wouldn't know how to update with the 
new icon, a better text, a link to the Cat's guide for building Krita from 
git. That's not so good :-(

People even get pissed that we're not on github, github is, after all the, 
Official Git Place. They don't trust a git repo that's not on github...
