And when we're at it: Can we sit down and make a LibO logo contest?
With a deadline? I suggest the following:

1) Have a contest for a general mockup, this includes
* Logo symbol
* Logo text (see issue I already mentioned, we need the text path to
be refined somehow)
* Icons for files and applications
* (Mascot)
The deadline for this part should be something like in two weeks or
so, mainly because we already have so many great ideas but they're
somehow spread a bit too far away. Then we decide upon the general
elements. Paper plane or book as symbol (just examples), which logo
text etc. will all be decided by vote. I'm not sure how that can be
done on a mailing list but I'm sure someone of you has an idea for

2) Have an actual logo contest
Now that we have the elements, we want the people to make great
artwork out of it. This includes the same things as before:
* Logo, different versions (color, grayscale, black, inverted),
different formats (small, square?, only symbol)
* Icons

I'd really appreciate some feedback on these ideas of mine. If you

I see no general problem with the current logo. However, just using a
font, typing a name and saying "this is my logo" is not the way logos
are done, usually at least. I know we're just at the beginning but
still I felt like doing some enhancements. So here we are:
I've changed several things:
* ffi ligature
* raised the lower line of both c and e
* reduced and evened space between letters
* fixed base line
* fixed weird bend on e
I know, it's not perfect but I hope you like it anyways...
