#46363 new enhancement

Images in about.php should be served locally, not from s.w.org

As part of the ongoing efforts to reduce the external resources loaded by a vanilla WordPress install to zero, the images used in the about.php page should be included in the ZIP archive instead of being served from https.//s.w.org/images. Since these are SVG images, the download size should not increase significantly. Serving the files locally is beneficial both for reasons of privacy and speed.
