I dont see any other work been doine on branding. Not on the wiki nor on
the website. Can you point out to a different community-builted work about
this? It make better sense to have the ones that Oracle has with the
branding it has, thant has a partially implemented work.

Orb has many threads already, I wonder where you were then, and wha are you
suggesting to do instead. Orb is quite well discussed here. I am not
opposed to go back to the old Sun-Impossed OpenOffice.org logo with the
gulls and blue and black, and get back the ".org". But so far nobody has
really pushed this.

Colors and design are different things, did you open the attachments? They
have color on them and they look pretty opting for a circular iconset looks
much better than having half (application based icon) circular and
(document mime) squared.
