[Foundation] logo politicking

not sure i agree with the light bulb as first choice.  When i look at a logo
I look for ways that it can someday be animated or fit into other graphic
settings.  The lightbulb in #2 just sticks out and dominates the logo
without saying much..though an attractive graphic it doesn't inspire me ...

#6 is simple but the graphic was nicely done ...shows motion of the 'J' and
has the making of an emoticon with animation potential.  Nice font that is
hopefully public domain and good choice of colors.  Only wish JSF or
software foundation was somewhere in the picture.

don't know why it  wouldn't be possible to trademark or service mark #1 ...
but it's graphic is nonetheless static with little potential for extension
(like #2 IMO).

agreed on #3 and #4.  Just don't get #5.
