This can be easily updated, what is more dificult is trying to get
back some of these marketing jobs, specially sources files. These
source files makes editing and generating marketing kits more easily.

Other communities like Software freedom day has been pretty good on
launching new marketing kits, or images. OOo days, there was also some
marketing efforts on presenting a similar design for things. Like the
wireframe gull or the waves.

unfortunately oracle's brand refresh of just using 'white' left us
with only the orb as a design element.

Apache hasn't really produce much, even with the logo there are some
missing pieces. So I think is important at least to have something
like brochure sources, newsletters, and such to be able to pull
together some marketing efforts.
