And decisions about the name will be made by the active members of the 
PPMC either having an obvious consensus, or by having a [VOTE] thread.

This is a critical issue to understand as the community here grows.  A 
successful project community definitely solicits and listens to the 
feedback from it's users.  But active project committers also need to be 
careful to not let user input derail their energy and focus at actually 
doing work on the project.

In the future, once the community matures and has more clearly 
understood tasks and ways of working on various lists, I would expect a 
proposal and basic decision on something like a new logo would be made 
on the ooo-marketing@ list.  But at the current time, while everyone is 
still learning how to work together efficiently, I would recommend 
having the decision here on ooo-dev@ still.
