We should decide here about the way to go: like F11, trying to get a 
concept/metaphor and everybody working toward it or like F8-F10 with an 
open "competition".
I think neither of those worked very well...

According to the schedule, we have Alpha freeze on 2009-08-04 and Alpha 
release on 2009-08-18.

Maybe we should set a date before the Alpha freeze (a number of weeks 
after the release name announcement) as a deadline for *concept* 
submission, so we have the time for a selection before the freeze?
