Very nice,
85+ submissions :)

good work!

> OK, folks, we received *way* more logo contest entries (85+) than I

> 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.
