Decisions need to be made with regard to pallett and style.  Graphic artists 
and Marketing will need a style manual first before there is a decision about 
the logo.  To do that there needs to be an identifying of target market 
because different pallets appeal to different demographics and engender 
different reactions.  We need to identify the sort of emotions we want to 
engender in that target market.

We need to go to the market determined to succeed, so that when the world 
hears Linux they see and think and feel Mageia.  Choosing logos and pallets 
and marketing materials is not something you leave to a lottery.
