Subject Re: potential new Lucene logo

Hello Murray,

Thanks for doing this and contributing.  Changing the logo is not an
urgent or even needed, but it looks like there are issues with it, so
it would be nice to fix it up the way you started.

The 3rd version with green oval looks nice to me.  I'd still close the
'e's and clean up the pale green colour between letters.  The black
font version seems too boring (I'm wearing all black today and I think
I made a boring choice this morning).  The green is better, but maybe
the oval ruins the 60s look (not sure, I was still just a concept in
the 60s).  It's sunny in NYC today, so I'm feeling bright, happy,
energetic and all that.  Maybe some stronger, happy colour that looks
good on white?
