Oups, forgot users list.

Might be just me, but though I'm not against using a raven, I'd at least
prefer the more friendly 13 one (see
http://people.apache.org/~stephenc/maven-logo-contest/screenshot-13.png).
I'm actually far more liking the friendly teddybear's style of the moose (
http://people.apache.org/~stephenc/maven-logo-contest/maven-3a.png) even if
this animal might be badly connotated (not here in France, I'd say, since
we're not accustomed to seeing them ;-)). The "The Crow" dark style isn't
friendly enough, /me think.
