I am confused about having the branding all disjointed, OO is used
implemented halfway, we use Oracle brand refresh elements just on certain
parts. The brand refreshed used this:
- Symbols
- Logo
- Icons
  - application
  - modules
  - filetype

There was some big drawback on the monotone look of the filetype, but for
some unknown reason there was no implementation on the modules either.
Since, we have been keeping Application logos from 3.1, modules logos from
2.4 and filetypes of 2.0.

Specifically on the logo, we have 2 versions, one with the "gulls" and the
other with the "orb". I am not sure if there is a representation.

There is also the issue with the fonts, where the fonts are not open, and
we currently don't have a specific vector format logo, between using
Nimbus, Liberation or Bitstreams we still dont have a good functional

My proposal is:
- Get rid of incubating
- Normalize the font-face of the logo
- Update the modules logo to the latest refresh
- Review new filetypes contribution

Rather than changing and implementing a new design, work on the proposals
to have a consistent look.
