Anyways, I would be quite unhappy to see a new logo on the site
without its creation/selection being openly discussed. I happen to be
on this mailing list (and will unsubscribe once this mail is sent
since I am not interested in flame wars, a potpourri of quoting styles
or this many e-mails), otherwise I would not have heard of this.

OSMF, this belongs to http://blog.osmfoundation.org/

And in my opinion it also belongs into a official OSM news
feed/site/page. If there are "forces" deciding and forming aspects of
OSM, then this should be done as public as possible and as convenient
as possible. Mailings lists, forums, IRC are neither. Of course the
creation of such main news display would require more thoughts on what
gets posted and what not, but to me, that sounds worthwhile.

I really like the current logo and see no reason to waste money,
thoughts or time on a new one. The current logo was created just half
a year ago.
