Speaking as a member of both marketing and osgeo-live committees,

I think it is appropriate to use the OSGeo logo and not OSGeo-Live logo 
for this OSGeo-Live release. As Jody says, OSGeo-Live won't have moved 
to the new OSGeo logo yet, and I think it best to use the new OSGeo 
branding for FOSS4G. I also think we shouldn't confuse messages by 
providing 2 logos.
