Hi all,

The Fineract site was "dinged" for having the logo and the disclaimer
"buried deep within website".  They are both at the bottom.  But the text
"(incubating)" is at the top right next to the text "Apache Fineract".  In
fact, as a result of where it's positioned, the text "(incubating)" shows
up as part of the title in google search results.  Putting the incubating
logo at the bottom of the site was purely an aesthetic choice, made after
we checked out the website both on a laptop screen and on a mobile screen.
The decision was not made with the intention to obscure.  As to the
disclaimer, where else would you put a disclaimer, but at the bottom?

I personally feel that the Fineract website follows both the spirit and the
letter of the law when it comes to displaying its incubating status.  It
seems from this Audit result though that the IPMC disagrees with me on
this, which makes me doubt that I understand the spirit of the law.  Or
perhaps I'm just misunderstanding the audit?

In any case, the contributors to Fineract are in it for humanitarian
reasons; we don't want to subvert intentions here. If we've got something
wrong, we'd very much appreciate further guidance.

Also if Apache is going to redesign the logo (+1 non-binding from me on
that one), I hope we keep mobile screens in mind while designing.  It's a
corner case for an open source project, but nonetheless, many of our
intended beneficiaries are lucky if they have even a smart phone.

Greetings from the Voreifel, Germany
Myrle
