First, I want to thank everyone for their support and the opportunity to 
do this. I am very excited about being able to do something to help with 
the Debian effort.

I hope I am up to speed with this conversation. I had subscribed to the 
logo list but nothing ever came in. I must have missed a conformation 
email or something. Can you send me the URL again?

I think the idea of limiting these final decissions to debian-publicity 
is a good one.

I would like to make a list of what is required for now, so far:

* Gifs for downloading from the Debian site
* "Netscape Now" like buttons
* 64X64 icons (Can someone please elaborate on this one and please 
provide some samples)

Before I go ahead and make all these items I would like to see a final 
decission on which will be the official and general.

There will likely be a need for making new graphics for the site later on 
(I will be more than happy to assist with this to the extend you need me 
to) as well as other items (more than one person has expressed interest 
in artwork for t-shirts)

PS: I have put up some preliminary buttons at:
