I believe Gary meant a vote on the logo - I'm not sure how that relates to web configuration

viewed at http://www.fdmhosting.com/log4j2/.  I am going to be honest and say that none of
them grabs me and says “that’s the one”, although I like the ideas expressed in quite
a few of them.  I definitely like the play on version 2 and using it as a superscript to make
it appear as log4j squared.   Many of the logos just feel too big to me - they have Log4j
adjacent to the image, making them take up a lot of horizontal space. On the images themselves,
I really like the coffee cup submitted by Murad,   I like the script used by Andreas but I
would prefer that the 4 was facing the correct direction and that the 2 superscript be to
the right of the 4 instead of to the left.  I think many of the graphics submitted by Gary
are kind of cool - they are very modern looking.
