+1 for corporate identity, and
+2 for getting this done before squeeze :)

From a first glance at both of them, I'd say Kalle set up a new
stylesheet for an existing layout (e.g. packages view, bugs etc.) while
Agnieszka tries to go a step further. I would like to them to find a
common line here. I think in some places simplifying the view would be
very good but we cannot afford lowing information over it. But this is
design which I basically have no clue at all about... :)

I had a look at a few different variations of the logo as well and must
say that I'd prefer keeping it the way it is now. If for printing there
is a need to simplify it (e.g. for small logos on T-shirts or whatever)
I would still be fine with that.
But having a look at our logo in different colors I don't think that
keeping the current color is mandatory. If we stay in the same color
range I'm totally fine with a change, i.e. it should not be black or
green all of the sudden.

Anyways, thanks again for the design work. Keep it up and push the
changes. :)
