I just thought about his blog entry and when I think about our Logo, i see
the following things in it:

Our logo represents the cauldron as it is the name of our testing
environment. A cauldron has something magical in it, you put things in to
it, and it comes something wonderful out of it, for someone not knowing what
the man/woman does it sounds like a mirracle. Isn't just this the meaning of
our philosophy? Providing the user a distribution where he thinks wow it
works, it don't know how but it works.

And that's a point I see when thinking about our logo.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
