Subject Re: [VOTE] PPMC members to decide voting procedure
Date Sat, 14 Jan 2012 13:07:56 GMT

Note: The design as accepted by popular vote will be treated as a  
proposal that can be tweaked and cemented into it's final published  

Note the rules say "design" not logo. What you are worried about is

AIt has also been stated that the url that was submitted is the design  
being voted on even if designers make newer versions, they need to  
update the original submission url.
