since they still use the previous design elements (those currently used in Apache OpenOffice
trunk) but add a fresher look. Any thoughts? I would only discuss the six application icons
for the time being, and only focus on the design, not licenses or permissions (read the issue
for those, and we can investigate further if we decide to give the proposed icons a try).

I think that these icons are really cool.

I disagree about waiting to ask the designer about the license. If the designer is not willing
to use the Apache LIcense then we shouldn't take any of our time on these designs. I commented
on the issues and asked that the 0dd0ne be asked about the license.

I wouldn't want to be required to go to the designer with any necessary changes or derivative
works. For instance I was confused by the Draw icon because it actually made me think of writer.

We need to make clear to everyone that contributions to the BZ are under the Apache License.

(I also realize that we don't want to discuss the merits of licenses.)

Dave
