yes, I know...I am rather late to this party.

I would be happy to make a proposal to adopt the first banner on

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/Logo+Proposals

as the "official" web logo, and actually make this change, but...

to the current "incubating" logo which we currently have or ???

I probably have missed other discussions about the "incubating" topic.
