Subject Re: Solr Logo thought
Date Sat, 09 Aug 2008 06:36:50 GMT

: To me, the release timing doesn't much affect what logo we decided to use or
: when to adopt it.  Surely the most visible, important location for the logo is
: on the website, that we can replace at any time?

Agreed ... the 2 biggest takeaways from the recent interest in 
redesigning the logo seem to be:
  1) we should try to get a wide variety of Logo ideas before 
     making any changes.
  2) we shouldn't rush making changes.

Speaking of which, if we want to maintain the momentum of interest in this 
topic, someone (ie: not me) should setup a "LogoContest" wiki page with 
some of the "goals" discussed in the various threads on solr-user and 
solr-dev recently, as well as draft up some good guidelines for how we 
should run the contest ... a google search for "apache logo contest" will 
turn up some good backround on how this has been done by other projects in 
the past.  (Allthough i think attaching submissions to SOLR-84 makes more 
sense then having people inline them in the wiki ... Jira has the 
nice "Grant License" chain of custody)
