We are focusing on that... in a way. One of the major problems is the use
of the current license. The project is split on restricting the logo for
use only in "Official" work (more than 50%) and a more libral license.
I'd like to have a "logo" or some feature that is CLEARLY linked in theme
on my web page (a powered by or optimized for type button) but my web page
is DEFINATLY not 50% or more debian and never will be. It's my personal
web page. I could create my own, but then there is no "linked identity"
and that's not worth the work for an unartistic person like me (Joey is
a better artist than I) to try to do.
So... we're tackling several issues at once... a license, a new logo (many
don't like the chicken) and a seperate looser logo. There are already a
few draft licenses floating around that I've seen waiting for the time
to enter the fray.
P.S. we can easily extend the license. I think July would be fine, however.
We should have the current logo situation solved by then.
