I think it's beneficial to discuss this stuff here. For example, I really like
logo XXX, but I think the current background color makes it a poor choice. We've
already tentatively agreed that color changes can be made after acceptance, but
if I find out that people who voted for XXX love the current background color,
then I'm I'm inclined not to vote for it since it likely won't be changed after
