If we are signing off on payment, can you please provide the criteria 
provided to Nicolas, so that we can confirm that he has met that criteria.

I personally am really impressed with Nicolas' work. I love the 
consistency Nicolas has brought to the symbol set, and the fact that it 
is using SVG which can be scaled. I can see it as being something we can 
use in an aggregate situation (such as OSGeoLive).

I also see extra things which I'd like to see happen for this task. 
(Maybe as a next engagement for Nicolas).

1. I feel the grey logos could be much better if we added the source 
colours to them.

2. For the symbol set to be sustainable, it will need to be able to be 
updated long term, by more people than Nicolas. We would want new 
projects to be able to create their own logos. Hence, we should provide 
a HOWTO page which explains the process for creating a new logo that a 
project (typically a software developer) could follow. Ideally the 
barrier to entry in creating the logo will be low.
