Unfortunately the rules of 99designs require super fast responses from us; they have their
own schedule based rules. I dropped the contest because 2 of the 4 people responding that
day were against continuing and we were only on the first phase of the design.

Sorry if others wanted to continue but I think 99designs just doesn’t fit the ASF collaboration

We are revamping the website so it would have been nice to update the logo but we’ll have
to use a more relaxed collaboration method and/or service.

Does anyone know of a designer that wants to donate some work that would have a fair amount
of visibility?

Just seeing this now, so maybe too late for my vote to count, but here goes. 

On Process: Pat thanks for organizing.

+1 to continue to work on logo. Something without the blue man or elephant is good idea. Prefer
not all blue logo.

On designs:

My favorites two from the second batch (both are blue & yellow)

BEST for me is  one with interlocking thin squares and word "Mahout" - MY FAVORITE 

2nd best for me is one with word "Mahout" in black on interlocking solid yellow/blue background

3rd is simple letter M as wireframe 
but prefer the diagram be in yellow.

I don't care for the loopy curved logos (sorry Andrew!) 

Good luck!!

We can treat this like a release vote, if anyone hates all these and doesn’t want to continue
with shortlisted designers for 3 more days (the next step) vote -1 and say if your vote is
binding (your are a PMC member)

Otherwise all are welcome to rate everything on the polls below.

In this case you have 24 hours to vote

Here’s my +1 to continue refining.

Here is a second group, hopefully picked to be unique.

We got a lot of responses, these 2 polls contain the best afaict.

Vote: <>

We asked for something “mathy” and asked for no elephant and rider. We have the rest of
the week to tweak so leave comments about what you like or would like to change.

We don’t have to pick one of these, so if you hate them all, make that known too.
