I am a bit confused on this one - part of the point of having our mark was
to use it everywhere on all the OSGeo things.

The symbol set for "board" and "local chapter" go against this direction of
our style guide.

We went through one round of compromise for our style guide, for local
chapters providing guidance on the creation of subbrands. I see no reason
to encourage the use sub brands within our organization?

I am really enjoying the osgeo project and community project symbols :) A
couple notes:
- The osgeo-postgis is based on boundless branding for postgis (as part of
it including it in the old osgeo suite product). The dimond shape used is
not part of that community's branding (they have an elephant named "Slonik"
holding the world cheerfully).
- get-it just added themselves to the website wrong and have not yet asked
to be a community project? I am trying to confirm now ...
- Loader is being added (it is approved but still has a draft web page)
- GC2/Vidi was just added yesterday
