Hi all,

I suppose everyone knows there is a gimp/logo contest for debian
(http://contest.gimp.org/rules/).  I find this a bit strange.  On the
one hand, the logo must be easily scalable, on the other hand, the gimp
contest demands that it is totally developped in gimp.  These are
conflicting demands.  I would say there should be a good scalable,
good-looking in black and white, logo in a vector format first, which
can then of course be manipulated in the gimp and raised to great
artistic heights :)  In other words, the fact that the logo-contest is
a gimp-contest at the same time, limits the logo designers in a way
that is by no means advantageous to debian.  I would suggest that logo
designers are at least _allowed_ to use any other tool they choose as

Any Comments?
