Well, we had lengthy discussions on branding around the time of the
AOO 3.4.0 release.  That is when we went with the current website
logo.  But we said at that time that we'd revisit this all with the
next major release.  So I think any proposals are welcome.

But speaking for myself, I'd really like to see a comprehensive
proposal, since one criticism of our current state is that we lack a
comprehensive approach.  Especially for those who are not familiar
with this old logo dispute with Oracle, it would be good to put down,
in one place (the wiki) a complete proposal.

Or, even if we had the outline/template for a proposal, e.g., "any
comprehensive branding proposal must define these N elements; 1, 2,
3...N".  Then we can ask for proposals and discuss them.  Could even
have a contest ;-)
