I would like to see it this way.  Save the time of the people which
are intended to do things which couldn't be accepted.  I hope this
is a fair intention and I never want to embarrass someone who wants
to support the project.

Quite a bad thing for us I think.  Let us stick to the old one until
we really find a good logo.  It's the debian common sense:  Let us
stich to the old release until we really have a new stable distribution.
And if the logo decision not is finished when slink is to be released
then stay with the old one.  Potato will hopefully come with a new
logo as well as a new default kernel.

I think we discussed the thing some time ago...
Moreover it is Off-Topic under this thread subject.
