[Live-demo] Requirements for project logos?

I'm revisiting and updating our definitions of OSGeo Marketing Artefacts 
[1] and OSGeo Live build steps  [2] (mainly pointing from the Marketing 
Artefacts to the OSGeo Live for the process to create the artefact).

And I'm stuck on our definition of project logos and project icons.
We don't seem to have any consistency in logo size here:
Most logos are in png format, but there are some in gif and svg

Also, I can't seem to find the guidelines on how to create a desktop 
icon, what shape it should be in, what format, etc. (I'm pretty sure 
Hamish pointed me at a wiki page before)
I'm inclined to suggest that we should have these desktop icons in our 
svn, as it would be useful for people building derived marketing 
material (like powerpoint presentations) to have it all in one place.

So I'd like advice on the definition of what we should be asking for in 
our processes regarding project logo / and project icon.

I suspect this will be a preference of svg, with a fall back to png.
