Trademarks issues is a whole different discussion, where we have to start
with a name search (see status page) to get the name accepted, it does not
seem correct to have the logo accepted before the name.

There has been some debate on general@i.a.o when it is appropriate for a
podling to start discussing trademarks, and to me it seemed to be something
to be done when we are close to graduating.

The owl is hand drawn by dorte, based on a photo taken and modified by
dorte, so seen from that point there are no conflicts in terms of is of course a different matter whether or not the
community like it.

but as I just wrote in a separate mail, if you or others feel it should be
discussed separately it is not a problem for me.

The original OWL image is the background picture. Dorte printed that out on
a big paper...put a transparent paper above it, and draw the logo, so it
has the exact same form as as the owl on the picture, then she did a lot of
magic with it in her graphic programs.

I have not checked what dorte committed to the site, but if she has
something of higher resolution, then I will ask her to mail it (and also
make sure it is somewhere in our repo).
