Hi Peter

My first thought (just that a quick thought) - use of the correct logo
for 3.3, in _all_ pieces of the work product, is not IMO a preference
rather a requirement.

I would hold to this as a requirement so long as the binary being
distributed in fact uses this new logo and Oracle branding - which I
assume it does. 

Understanding that there are long lead times for producing printed
material it still seems that given the correct branding being available
since Feb of 2010, IIRC, that this would be a point worth standing firm
on.

anyway, just what first came to mind.

Best wishes,
