Subject Re: [RESULT] [VOTE] Change project logo and adopt owl as mascot
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 18:31:26 GMT
The drawing and the colours could be described as a little bit playful, I'd

yet the danger that comes from improper handling ;-).

And let's face it - the name just sticks. It already has, for some of us.

"I call shotgun!"
