 	My understanding was that Rakudo only runs on top of Parrot.  Either 
way, I don't see why we need a logo for Parrot + Rakudo, any more than we need 
separate logos for Perl on Linux and Perl on Windows.

 	Or, to look at it a different way, I thought the definition of Rakudo 
*is* that it's "Perl 6 on Parrot".

 	Additionally, while you recommended Camelia for Rakudo, my 
understanding was that Larry was recommending it for Perl 6 rather than 

 	So, I guess I see a need for 3 logos as well, but one of them is 
already decided:
1.	Parrot needs and already has a logo (already decided)
2.	"Perl 6" needs a logo.  My current vote for this is for Camelia.  When
 	I say "Perl 6" here, I'm including the specs, the test suite,,
 	and any Perl 6 implementations.
3.	Rakudo needs a logo.  My current vote would be for some combination of
 	Camelia (or whatever we choose as the Perl6 logo) and the Parrot logo.

 	Maybe you're thinking the same thing as me, and using different words. 
Or maybe not.  Anyway, I think something here needs clarification for at least 
one of us.
