Andrew Hart updated GORA-3:

    Attachment: gora-3_v1.svg

I've added a candidate logo for the project, using Enis's outline as a guide.  I'm happy to
take feedback and make as many changes/mods as people feel would help. 

I've also added the source file (a .svg file done in Inkscape) as well in case anyone wants
to make edits independently.

subprojects. We can have Gora or Apache Gora text embedded to the logo. However, the logo
and the text can also be separate.

> And Hive logo is actually kind of clever : http://hadoop.apache.org/hive/
> Also Mahout logo is nice : http://mahout.apache.org/

Cassandra, etc, so we can reflect that in the logo if needed.
