Subject Re: [discuss] powered by (and other) logos
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 16:04:05 GMT
Giles,

I agree with your statement. I finally had a chance to look at it myself
and to me the immediate focal point of the update Powered By Apache logo is
the outside, not the project logo itself.

I would recommend option 3 that you proposed. It is very typical for a
Powered By logo to just have the words around the primary logo in some
fashion.
