|Re: [ee4j-community] Jakarta EE logo selection process - next steps|
I second that. The EF should simply remove those logos which are legally problematic, and then let the community vote for their favorite. This is a community project, and we are choosing our logo on our own. This is not a product of a vendor who lets the marketing department choose it.
I don't know if I am the only one. But I find this mail deeply disturbing.
You cannot possibly have missed that there were quite a few people who were not very happy about the approach to selecting the logo.
I myself do not really care one way or the other since I think there are more important issues at stake than the logo selection.
But just ignoring those people means their opinions do not even warrant a response. I think this very rude and this is no way to behave in a community.
Had you acknowledged those protests and stated an opinion that it is currently more important to move forward than having a long discussion along with pointing out a way on how to change the logo again at a later stage, I could have accepted this.
But I don't think building a community by ignoring dissenting opinions will work.

We have now closed the submission process.
Thank you for the many proposed logos, and associated comments. The contributions have been very useful.
As described earlier in the process, the next steps are the following:
From this process, the list of candidate logos will be trimmed to 2-4 final candidate logos. We are targeting completing this process by mid-next week.
Again, thank you to all for the input thus far, and we look forward to your input during the community vote.
