Hi all,

sorry, all my responses to the Website list are getting garbled. Don't
know what's up with that.
Anywho this is in relation to the "clover leaf" in the pigs mouth;

Christoph, I think it's cute and I like the optimism it portrays. I
would only remove the stroke from the leaves because I've avoided using
strokes in the pig.


Bernhard and Marc, I hate to be a downer, but in relation to the
clover-leaf being a symbol for LibO as a whole, I'm not sure about that,
I think the link is weak.
Clover leaf (luck, prosperity) makes sense at donation-time but what is
the link between Office software and luck in general? Bit of a stretch.
And I don't think we want the negative connotations that come with a
"luck" symbol (eg: you need a lot of luck to be able to use writer well).

Besides, when I think Libre, I think of /intentional/ actions of purpose
(like liberation and freedom), not luck.
I think when thinking symbolism to represent the whole project, we
should be looking for things that suggest strength, determination and

But that's just my take.

Thanks for your comments. They all make sense. Would be kind of neat to have the bent leaf "à la LibreOffice". We could always say that: "Every thing LibreOffice touches becomes libre ... luck is now libre." Hmmm. sounds viral. :-)
