Thanks, André --my apologies for the delayed response; I've been traveling for ApacheCon.
In case you weren't aware, there is an official "Powered By" badge that has been updated to
reflect the new ASF identity
The one that currently exists online for Apache CloudStack is using the old graphical assets,
but it's a useful resource to have. (yes, the CloudStack logo is too small, etc. )
And, seeing that most other ASF projects are using this (they are extremely popular as stickers!),
I'd encourage the project to consider updating and using this as well.
Warm regards,

for the delay, but our designer was off for some weeks. But finally we have put together some
proposals and I personally like the idea with the “stamp “ (option 5 or 6) best. So you
can stamp your homepage or any other Marketing Material with “powered by ACS”. And we
can easily include the proposal of Giles and replace the slogan “powered by” with "supporter
of" or  "contributor to"    Kindly have a look at following URL
and we are looking forward for your comments and feedback.    Thanks and best regards.

Betreff: Re: Supported by ACS logo    Hi Andre - welcome to the community - great to see
you here and I look forward to working with you and your colleagues     It's great news
that you can dive straight in with this important work    I can't find the old thread on
this, but in summary I think it stalled because the cloudstack logo didn't fit nicely inside
the "powered by" circle that Sally references ( it resulted in the cloudstack logo being very
small)    Maybe it could be made to work bu somebody with an eye for design. But as ilya
says, we don't have to stick with that design - it's not obligatory     Maybe best to come
up with some ideas and post a link here    Also : I've always thought that it would be good
to give some options that are not just "powers by"    A few with words like "supporter of"
and "contributor to" would be great     Kind Regards Giles   D: +44 20 3603 0541 | M: +44

  Again, given that our launch was just 26 hours ago, the icon for Apache CloudStack on file
is the old one, but still very much valid. If this fits your needs, feel free to use as appropriate.

Subject: Supported by ACS logo    Dear all,   I am pretty new to CloudStack community and
want to start my thread with a short introduction. I am working for BIT.Group GmbH and heading
the area called “Cloud Services”. There we are delivering Infrastructure Management Services
to big customers (mainly SAP) with a clear focus on open source technologies. That means we
do classical IT outsourcing specialized on implementing and operating virtualization and OS
layer with Experts / Administrators in Germany (Dresden) and China (Shanghai).   Giving this
background we started last year to build up an own “BIT.Cloud” and decided to use Apache
Cloud Stack and Ceph as focus technologies. Our experiences with ACS are really good (clearly
we find the one or the other optimization potential ;-)), we had great interactions in the
community already and we decided to deepen our involvement. So hopefully you will hear now
inputs from our side quite more often and we especially want to increase the CloudStack presence
in the German speaking area.   What we currently miss is a kind of “supported by ACS”
logo, because we want to publish our Cloud offering with a clear statement of our focus technologies.
I heart that there were already discussions in the past, but somehow it did not come to an
end. Do you also see the need or in general would you support the initiative to get such a
logo?   In case most of you answer the question with yes, I see following main questions:
  ·        Would you use the cloud stack (word), the monkey logo or the combination
of both? ·        Are there any legal restrictions which we have to consider (e.g.
does somebody has to approve this from ASF side?) ·        Do you know why the initiative
in the past did not succeed?   ·        Did someone in the past already created
some drafts or similar? ·        In case we have some logo proposals clearly some
will like it and some won’t. Will we start a voting procedure or how does this work usually?
  Please excuse this maybe stupid questions, but as I initially wrote, I am quite new to
thisJ.   My wish would be, that everybody can use such a “supported by” logo in case
he wants to and I would offer to engage our designer, to prepare some design proposals and
share the results with you.   I am looking forward for a fruitful discussion and your feedback.
