Subject Re: Time for an overhaul of the patterns symbols?

Hi Francis,

I now fully understand your intention and personally like the idea. (I'm
one of the big fans of "flat design" :-) ) As no one else seems to have a
strong opinion about it, let me suggest one more idea.

As I said EIP diagrams are not proprietary to Camel, I think it's best to
provide your works to the broader EIP community. One of the great things
about EIP is the diagrams are provided by the authors as CC-BY license:
so you can freely reuse and improve them so long as your works make the
original attribution clear.

So why don't you just go on your project and publish them on somewhere like
GitHub?  If your work is great and people in the EIP community like it,
then I'm sure your work will prevail!

Best regards,
