Subject Re: [WWW] new logo in staging only...I think we need a graphic modification
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 17:26:50 GMT
Hello all members,

It's Michael Acevedo, I am away from the computer that holds the files
right now but I do have the original files if you need them. Where should I
send them?

Otherwise, I am deeply honored by having Apache selecting the my logo for
OpenOffice.

Please let me know.
