The SVG was done by Alexandro from Michael's bitmap IIRC.  Michael's was
never "official", it was just the one that happened to be available.  There
was never any consensus that Michael's was going to be anything other than
a stop-gap for a first release from the ApacheOO podling.  Going forward
there needs to be proposals and discussion and a new branding that reflects
the New OpenOffice.

The new branding should have been discussed when I first brought it up last
year.  Any logos that are in use now, are stopgaps nothing more.  They are
simply rehashes of an old brand, we need shake off the Oracle detritus and
make our own mark, one that is owned and created by the Apache OpenOffice
