      1. As admin, browse to "Site administration" > "Appearance" > "Logos"
      2. Verify that the help text for the "Logo" element is: "A full logo to be used as decoration by some themes (core themes, for example). The resolution of this image may be high as it will be scaled down when in use (and cached for performance). Logos that are wider than they are high usually give better results. The format of the image must be PNG or JPEG."
      3. Verify that the help text for the "Compact logo" element is "A compact version of the same logo as above. For example, an emblem, shield, or icon. The image should be clear even at small sizes. The format of the image must be PNG or JPEG."

      Description

      MDL-55445 added a dedicated logos page for any theme to use if they want. In core it's used by Clean and More (if they haven't defined their own) and Boost (see MDL-57124).

      There are some assumptions in the themes that are not documented on the logos page or in logos docs, so this bug is to rectify that.

      Logos page: /theme/admin/settings.php?section=logos

      core_admin | logo:
      ORIGINAL: A full logo. The image format must be PNG or JPEG.
      NEW: A full logo to be used as decoration by some themes (such as core themes). This image can be quite high resolution because it will be scaled down for use (and cached for performance). Logos that are wider than they are high usually give better results. Formats accepted: PNG and JPG.

      core_admin | logocompact:
      ORIGINAL: A compact version of the logo. The image format must be PNG or JPEG..
      NEW: A compact version of the same logo as above, such as an emblem, shield or icon. The image should be clear even at small sizes. Formats accepted: PNG and JPG.

      Docs page: http://docs.moodle.org/32/en/admin/setting/logos

      Explain the two logos as above.
      List the themes it's used in: More, Clean and Boost
