The Debian Logo-team

After getting a few volunteers and asking a few other people I present
to you the Debian logo-team, who will select the best logos for your
voting pleasure:

  * Wichert Akkerman <wakkerma@debian.org>
  * Teemu Hukkanen <tjhukkan@fishpool.com>
  * Nils Lohner <lohner@debian.org>
  * James Treacy <treacy@debian.org>
  * M. Vernon <matthew@debian.org>
Besides our own personal taste we will use the following criteria to
select the best logos:
* easily recognizable
* must look good in black & white
* must be scalable
* not too detailed so it works in low resolution
* works both with and without text at the bottom (can be ignore if the
  text `Debian' is part of the logo)

Of course an important item is: what exactly constitutes a logo? Bruce
Perens gave the following description of a logo once (Nov 1997):

  I think it's important to look at a logo for a very short time without any
  prejudice (less than 1/2 second), and then think to yourself "what did I
  see?". The immediate answer should be "the debian logo". It should not be
  confused with anything else like two letters, the "Tux" the penguin, etc.
