some logos look strange, the background is not black but seems to be missing (I only checked the PNG format).
I just found out why that is:
<img src="images/OSGeo_2colorREV.png" alt="Two colour reversed logo" style="background: rgb(0, 0, 0) none repeat scroll 0%; -moz-background-clip: -moz-initial; -moz-background-origin: -moz-initial; -moz-background-inline-policy: -moz-initial;">
I imagine it might be helpful to have the logo carry its own black background color, but maybe I am wrong here (jpeg transparency?!, etc...).
maybe this is the page that you refer to:
Somebody (I admit it was probably me promptly running away) has suggested to work this over so that we have a common starting point. This might be worth a new top priority for VisCom so to not have happen what you fear - that everybody starts jumping at the logos and scrambles up their own version...

I fear now that the logos are ready, they're going to be storming the gates and we're going to quickly lose control :-)

[If we need additional file formats, we can ask him or do it ourselves.] He still owes Phase 3 (ad template, powerpoint template, business cards) and Phase 4 (formal branding guide). I've asked him for a date on Phase 3, and hinted politely that the business cards are most important.

Perhaps if everyone were to send me a list of what spins are needed ("Supporter of", etc) I can keep things sane... (Didn't I already start a list like that on the wiki? Hmm.)
