No objections


> OK, folks, we received *way* more logo contest entries (85+) than I
> thought we would (15?). This makes choosing a winner more complicated.
> However, I think you'll find that many of the entries simply are not
> contenders -- they are uninteresting or just plain ugly. In the interest
> of sparing the full membership the time-consuming task of wading through
> all 85+ entries, I would like to propose the following process:
> 1. The Marketing Team (led by Iain Shigeoka) will review all the entries
> and create a "short list" of finalists -- probably no more than a dozen.
> They will do this by March 13.
> 2. Iain and I will contact all the finalists on March 14 and request any
> necessary changes to their entries. Finalists will have 1 week to tweak
> their entries (e.g., to adjust the wording or provide correct formats).
> 3. The full JSF membership will vote on the finalists between March 22
> and March 31.
> 4. The winner will be announced at the regular JSF discussion on April
> 2.
> Any objections?

> P.S. You may be wondering who this "Marketing Team" is. There is no set

> Right now there are 15 people on the marketing at jabber.org list but only
> a subset of those folks have been active on the list or in the weekly
> meetings. I will defer to Iain to determine who should be on the team
> and therefore have the responsibility of culling through the entries
> (not that it's going to be fun...). If you really want to get involved,
