I'm really fine with whatever you guys eventually decide on, I'm just
happy we are actually doing an update of the icons now :D

The source is the SVG file already committed to trunk ;)
Just open it up in Inkscape or similar and edit it.

It's using paths instead of actual font strings, but originally I (and
gregg) have used Droid Sans for the "Powered by" text ans Syncopate Bold
for the APACHE text. Both are ASL and easy to find on Google's font page.

With regards,
Daniel.
