I hate the java stuff (professional).  I don't think much of the debian
stuff either (amateur).  Some of the things suggested here have been
pretty good.

How was the parrot logo created ??  I saw a suggestion here that it is
professionally designed but that wasn't confirmed.  It looks good enough
to me regardless.

I don't see a problem with a long list ...

I don't think the logo will make much difference.

I don't particularly care much about *what* the logo is or *how* it is
created.  I've only been offering comments as feedback to the people who
are actually working on it.  Beauty is better than not.
