I'm sorry to appear a bit disruptive, but I think that the changes
concerning the logo already address some parts of the community
branding. Although I'm happy if we can further refine our branding, I
fear that such changes lead to a bit confusion ... I've already seen a
lot of Material created for the trade fairs (shirts, banner, pens,
lanyards, ...) being affected of such changes. Moreover, blogger and
press already use the given material ... so I am a bit doubtful
concerning any change at the moment.
Thus, if there are issues to combine the document symbol with the rest
of the graphic items, would it be helpful to just foucs on the text
LibreOffice and a subline? If we need something "neat", why not play
with the triangle that may be added somewhere - it can also be
considered to be a (current) key visual.
What do you think?

sorry for not replying earlier, but...
If we were feeling adventurous, I think small changes could really
improve the look of the current logo; (refer to R05)
- Clip the L so it is cut by the same gap which slices the paper icon:
Good idea - even if I don't think we should do the same with the "b2"
as in R06.
I've already tried to reduce the distance between symbol and "L" even
more by extending the green corner to the "L" - not really a valid idea,
but you might get what I mean, when I'll upload the draft tomorrow
(today only mail access).
Still with the darker grey, no consistency in borders, distance between
symbol and corner still to be improved and many other things...
I'd like to see the symbol as integrated part of the logo - and with
less difference in height between symbol and text, allowing the text to
be readable in smaller scales too.
I prefer b) very much over a), because the corner becomes too large and
I like optical illusion (negative visualization of the upper part of the
"L"), but I wanted to show you both.
