Hi, I think that what logo is used is not too important but THIS is
really important, we need some Xiph Official Branding Policy based on
technical support, especially now that Theora is coming closer. I don't
mind if it is Ogg(codec), Ogg Level I or whatever but it's very
important to have it on Xiph.org. And yes I also thing that we should
base branding around Ogg, just as Apple does with Quicktime (and not
sorenson) and M$ with Windows Media.
