Hey again!

Okay, the consensus seems to be that having a logo competition is a
good idea, so we're having a competition!

The forum thread I linked in the other ML thread[1] has been teeming
with activity, and many proposals have already been submitted before
we've even done anything[2]!  I have a feeling this will turn out quite

I'm starting a new thread to keep things organized.  This thread is now
for discussion of the rules of the logo contest.  I propose simple

. Anyone can submit as many concepts as they wish
. Entry is freeform, no need to base it on current logo
. All submitted entries must be under a freely-modifiable license,
or be willing to transfer rights of the logo to Arch.

Per submission, we want:
. SVG or PNG logo at 128x128
. Palette used (16 colours max)
. Simplified 2-colour version (b&w, for instance)
. Scaled version(s) (16x16 required, anything between 128x128 and 16x16
also cool)

Foxbunny, from the forums, made a proposed submission sheet[3] and gave
an example submission[4] - do we want to make use of these?  As they
currently are, or with some modification?

Please comment on these rules - I'd like to pounce on the energy in the
forums while it's still there. :)
