Strictly speaking, being open-source doesn't appear in my list at all.
It would emphasize access to source code, while Free Software emphasizes
the 4 software freedoms. Free Software as such only appears in the list
for contributors.

Short of adding a gnu, all that can be done graphically is hinting at
freedom and openness as such, anyway.

Owls came to my mind, too, and I agree with all the above. While I think
an owl would be more appropriate for something that is more focused on
knowledge or wisdom, I would not rule it out here.


BTW, what I called briefing here actually reaches into
analysis/conception, because I think we need all that as common base. It
should be useful for more than just the logo.
