Well, let's put an end to this: introduce a second contest which is more 
open regarding the tools for creation. So, those sticking to gimp as the 
required tools shall go on submitting onn contest.gimp.org and all those 
not willing or able to fulfill this requirement should use another one, say 
opencontest.debian.org or so.

At the end of the contest, the best logo(s)  from each contest is (are) 
brought into competition. If the gimp-one rules our the immorals'  logo, 
just fine ... if not, they might come around and try to rebuild it using 
gimp/fig whatsoever, which *IS* possible.

Although this doesn't solve the inherent conflict of using non-free 
software, it could provide a solution.

...if Joey's request for an everlasting logo should be halfway fulfilled. 
Btw: The logo doesn't really need to be lasting forever, but a trendy 
redesign should be possible without kicking it .... look at the beloved 
microsoft logo ... those who remember the old times.


Homage to all those without a stupid signature...
