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
logo until potato will be released.  But we will manage it only, if we
have a *clear concept* what we want as logo.  Otherway we will
discuss until Debian version 17.4 about the logo topic :-(.

Kind regards
