Subject Re: [Solr Wiki] Update of "LogoContest" by HossMan
Date Sat, 27 Sep 2008 17:52:32 GMT

Ok, based on what little feedback I've gotten from the PRC this is about 
as good as I can come up with at this point.  What do people think of this 
as it is?  what do people think of the timeline?

:   
:    * Submissions must include a usable web version (PNG preferred) and a scalable vector,
print quality version of the logo
:    * The logo will be used to promote Apache Solr and should evoke the overall Apache Software
Foundation brand [community-centric open source development, delivering the highest quality,
standards compliant software]
: -  * The logo must incorporate the full project name: Apache Solr /!\ :TODO: /!\ ''''Is
this strictly true? several current Apache logo's don't have this.''''
: +  * '''The logo must incorporate the full project name: Apache Solr'''
: +    * NOTE: The word "Apache" may be in a smaller font then "Solr"
:    * The logo should not incorporate images that are exclusively specific to Native American
culture.  However, symbols that have broad or multiple meanings are acceptable in evoking
a Native American theme.  Thus, a feather, which has many possible applications, would be
appropriate, but a headdress would not be. 
:    * The logo should not incorporate any overt cultural or religious symbolism
:    * The logo may incorporate other imagery, abstract symbols or a catchphrase, so long
as the full project name is included somewhere in the logo.  To this extent, the full project
name can be displayed in a smaller font size than the main image, if there exists a main image

:   Supporting "branding" images (ie: favicon, small version, large version, black and white
version, etc...) are not necessary, but may be included and considered as a factor by the
community when voting.

: - == Deadline ==
: + == Voting ==

: - Entries will be accepted until '''?DATE?''' at which time a community poll will be taken
into consideration by the developers in picking the new logo on '''?DATE?'''
: + Once the Deadline for Submissions has been reached, A thread with the subject "[VOTE]
COMMUNITY LOGO PREFERENCES" will be started on the solr-user mailing list.  Any and all members
of the Solr community are encouraged to reply to this thread and list (up to) 5 ranked choices
by listing the Jira attachment URLs.  Votes will be assigned a point value based on rank.
For each vote, 1st choice has a point value of 5, 5th place has a point value of 1, and all
others follow a similar pattern.

: - /!\ :TODO: /!\ what will the polling mechanism be?  what kind of voting system will be
used?  will there be multiple rounds?  do committers make the final decision or should it
be entirely based on a community vote?
