Subject: [VOTE] Logo contest round #2

Hello thriving community!

We have had a great Logo contest so far. There were a lot of votes, and a
lot of discussion. All of the submission were great, and we truly appreciate
the contribution of such great work. The PPMC members have been carefully
dissecting what the next steps should be. This has been a difficult task on
its own, as we don't want to offend anyone's great work and contribution. We
also want to make sure we communicate effectively with the community,
therefore we had some private discussions on how to proceed carefully and

With that said, the tallies are posted [1].

[2] #49:
   Total:            106.5 Pts
   Community:   83.5 *
   PPMC:          23

[3] #42:
   Total:             99.5
   Community:   68.5
   PPMC:          31 *

[4] #40:
   Total:             65
   Community:   63
   PPMC:          2

There are more community votes for #49 over #42 by only ~15. While the PPMC
members also had #49 in their top list, #42 came out on top, while #40 was
not favored by PPMC. Since there is no clear winner between #42 and #49, we
are conducting another round of voting for those submissions. So with that
warrants a congratulations to Tomasz Maciag and Julien Brehier for their
submissions and making it to another round.

Overall we should all be extremely happy with the votes as #42 and #49 were
both the top two choices for the PPMC and the community. A clear sign that
the community and PPMC are in-sync. We passed an early and important test!
And congratulations to everyone else that submitted a logo as well!

With this round of voting, we're only going to have a +1 to which logo you
prefer (#42 or #49). Remember, PPMC members votes are the final say, and
ultimately, that will be the what final decision becomes, but the community
votes help the PPMC members make their decisions, so get voting, and let us
know which you like the best!

With everything said, some of our discussions included concerns on how each
logo represents the future of Apache Flex. One specific concern was how #49
appeared to some of the PPMC members, and feeling that some users could look
at the logo as negative. Not saying at all that the logo truly has any
negative context, but there are some concerns surrounding it. I don't want
to spell them out, as to not give the community a new vision on what the
PPMC members are seeing. Just take a careful and close look at which logo
you choose, and choose wisely!

Let the voting commence, and good luck to Tomasz Maciag and Julien Brehier
in this showdown of the new Apache Flex logo!
