Panel with Animated GIF

Hi all -

While customizing my own panels I noticed that image panels can’t contain animated GIFs or other animated formats.

An extension to display a single, external animated GIF from say, only (or a whitelist of valid image hosts) seems pretty straightforward, and I can’t see anything in the extensions guidelines and policies that would disallow it.

Is there any reason such an extension wouldn’t be allowed? I’d like to check that it won’t be immediately rejected should I make it.

The only way to be sure is to submit for extension review and see what the review team says.
