Hi all,

I like the work and direction it is heading but I think there is too
much emphasis on the year "2009". For a branding logo "Software Freedom
Day" and "www.softwarefreedom.org" should be more important and larger.
The actual date each year is of lesser importance and could be displayed
below the logo or not at all.

The logo should concentrate on the sun, the hill, "Software Freedom Day"
and "www.softwarefreedom.org". This logo, either coloured or black and
white, could be used below signature blocks on emails and letters. The
black and white logo would stand out when printed on monotone laser
printers and could be used with coloured paper, which would reduce
printing costs.

Just my $0.02 worth.
