Re: Call for logos for DebConf20 Online
I wish everyone is well.
I would like to state that Jeff's proposal is very good,
considering that Debian is made by network/online, but this moment
says: #StayAtHome or #DebConfAtHome
The element of a house and Debian inside is very significant for me.
Guidance around the world to save as many lives as possible.
If there is no rejection, all of my submitted proposals could be
disregarded if they open for voting. (So sorry for this).
In the beginning, when I started collaborating with Art on Debian, we
did it in the form of competitions. But it has been a long time since
there is a lot of sense, there are many good designers helping the
project and I have observed that competition is more a way to keep
them away than to add. For this reason, I believe that we have evolved
and I hope that the theme of the next Debian release and or even of
the next DebConf, can be done following the principles of
Collaboration and not more disputes with several proposals.
That this discussion may be part of some other time or list,
unfortunately I am not comfortable following it for now. The important
thing is to recognize that there is no dispute for the best proposal,
if not, an intention to collaborate with the project and everyone is
able, those who do not master the graphic tools can collaborate with
concepts, ideas; Those who master the handling of graphics software,
collaborate in making the idea presentable / usable.
