For a while there, we were having such fun posting proposed logo
designs; there were easily 20 posts a day on the topic. I requested
that the local posting stop so we could run a contest "for real," that
would include the wider C++ community, and solicited a contest manager,
but so far nobody has stepped forward. It would be a real shame if
Boost ended up with no new logo or an inferior logo just because of that.

Really, for some of you who've been very involved with the previous
flurry of posts, this job shouldn't occupy much more time than you were
already going to spend on it. Someone just has to:

 1. write up a voting system
 2. modify the wiki page to reflect recent requirements consensus
 3. post an announcement
 4. tally the results

Rene has already established a great "head start" by setting up the Wiki
page. Isn't there anyone out there who's willing to perform this
valuable service to the Boost community?

Don't make me start emailing individuals to prod them ;-)
