[arch-dev-public] Freshen Arch's Graphical Identity (Logo)

Hey all!

A few threads have started up in the last little while on the forums
with "new" logo concepts for Arch - having read them, the most recent[1]
made me start thinking that maybe we should put some thought into
updating the logo and making it look a bit more professional.  I
personally would like to see a bit of an update there, something a bit
snappier than our current logo[2] which, to me, is looking a bit dated
and unprofessional.

Suggestions have been made to allow the community to participate, in
both the creation of logos for the purpose of being the "new
official front-page Arch logo" and also for voting which of the
submissions should be used.  I like the idea of a community-designed
logo, and the activity in the thread linked below would indicate that
the community is also pretty enthused at the thought, but we could
always just do a Dev-vote to decide which of the submissions we'd
prefer if we didn't want to make it a community vote.

In any case, I think this is worth investing time in, and I'm prepared
to spearhead any initiative on this front.  What I'm looking for now is
your opinions - do you agree or disagree that maybe it's time to give
the logo a sprucing-up?  Any comments from the dev team?  What's your
opinion, Aaron, o benevolant overlord who is currently away on a great
trip of sorts but will shortly return?

Looking forward to your responses. :)
