Hi guys,
There has been some discussion around all that you mentioned, the  
latest was through the Visibility Committee and education lists, e.g.:

The discussion has been somewhat disjointed, because it is confusing  
to think about who is best to work on these problems.  The ball is in  
the Visibility Committee's court, though the committee could sure use  
some help.

>> Here is the OSGeo logo in various formats:

Michael Gerlek (viscom chair) has a proposal to clean up the logo and  
develop all the various formats of the logo, etc.  that we could  
need.  So that just needs a bit of time.  In the meantime, I will  
upload the .eps and .ai formats of the logo shortly.

Unless you are desperate, I don't think you should use the logos at  
this URL any more since we do have them in more accessible formats now.

The other issue is logo usage policy.  Again, it is the visibility  
committee's responsibility at the moment to draft up logo usage  
policy guidelines.  If anyone else has time to help pull something  
together, please join the visibility committee mailing list and let  
us know - we could use the help.  If our committee cannot pull  
something together in the next or so, then the board will have to  
hand the job to someone else.

Hope that adds some clarity for you.

If you have a good source for providing business cards, can you also  
let me know?
