Subject Re: potential new Lucene logo

In my opinion if you want to change the lucene logo make a new one. The 
one posted is almost the same than the original.

Murray, discussions are good because people participate and bring new 
ideas. Your time would be better spend if you create a new (diferent) logo.

I people don't like it they will have to say why or give some ideas and 
that would help to make better logo.

This is just what i think,
