Page v12 Debian Logo Draft: eb07 Yes 67% (140) No 32% (68)
Page v9 Debian Logo Draft: si02 Yes 32% (47) No 67% (96)
It didn't even make it boyond the ninth page. and I have seen governments
with less then 67% "yes" votes.
So 67% is no consens? A while back, there was a 99.9% "consens" in voting
for the communistic partys, I don't think the stake is that high any more.
Was the logo choice one of the cases which required the final
decision of the project leader?
Now that the choice is made and announced, there is no way back any more.
Please don't mind me chosing logo eb07 for representing debian on my site.
The decision not to emphasise the liunx penguin that much may be
politically correct (regarding that it is debian GNU/Linux), but I really
like that cute littly guy.
