I'm really happy that someone who is more important for the project than
me offers this opinion. Please let us develop a concept first and than
a logo. It doesn't matter how long the logo election proces will last.
Our releases need much time, too. In my opinion we could elect a good

have a *clear concept* what we want as logo. Otherway we will
discuss until Debian version 17.4 about the logo topic :-(.
