The situation is that some initial provisional choices have been made,
with the idea that those choices are up for possible change in the
near future. That notably apples to the color scheme. I think the logo
is still open to influence if interesting alternatives are proposed.
In particular, there is a wide opening for a MASCOT cum LOGO.

I'm pretty sure I'm not contradicting TDF intentions if I say that
*nothing* is set in stone yet, especially as the first LibreOffice
release has not shipped. "Let meritocracy and creativity rule" would
still be the rule of thumb.

One thing that is certain is that there is going to be a lot of work
upcoming on artwork for the distrib and for branding in the coming
months, and contributors are definitely needed for that.
