Ok, the board has taken this to heart.

The plan now is to clean up the logo a bit into Adobe. Adobe  
primarily because the pros use it, and my girlfriend is a pro... well  
you can't look a gift artist in the mouth :o) There are a few things  
that need to be done to ensure it scales cleanly and make sure the  
colors work. Not rocket science, just Adobe mechanics. I'll be  
passing things along to the originator to be sure we are playing by  
the rules.

Once it is cleaned up, it is off to Autodesk's legal folks for  
trademarking etc.

The catch phrase "Your open source compass" is nice, but everyone  
seems to want to snaz it up a little. So here is what the board  
decided today: We are going to accept suggestions until next Friday,  
May 12th 11:59pm GMT. Between the board, visibility and we committee  
we will knock out the iffy ones and create a ballot for all of us to  
vote on a phrase.

Here is the wiki addr for submitting your suggestions:

REMEMBER suggestions close next Friday, May 12th at 11:59pm GMT
