I've been catching up on the discussions from last week on this subject.

I sympathize with people who are coming later into this discussion and
still feel there is a wide open field for debate.

However, your comment above is in the category of saying, "Most people
feel that ..."  Really, the only person you can talk about is yourself.

Even if you read every single forum entry looking for feedback on the
logo, you are still drawing from a self-selected survey.  These are
people who cared enough to write something.  It could be that the people
who liked the logo said, "Looks great," and went on with their day.
We'll never really know.

Where is the real traction?  It is from the people who read
announcements, came to this mailing list, and got involved.  Nothing
occurred in secret, a good effort was made to seek out feedback  Back
then, when it was time for All New Ideas.

Now we are here.

I'm interested in seeing actual layouts using the new logo.  Anyone have
some drafts they care to share?
