I'm pretty sure we've agreed on "proposed for" as well, no?

There's also the question of whether a logo is needed for libraries developed to interoperate with Boost without intention of becoming part of Boost. I had hoped that "for use with" would satisfy both of the latter uses.

And proposed for?

After that, the next issue is:
o what pngs are generated by default from the svg, i.e. what pixel width
(small medium large?)
o where in the tree do they go, (I assume near the current logo)
o how to make them available. The "POWERED BY" logo should probably be
easily available from The others can probably live in
the source tree because the people that use them will probably have
boost as source
o documentation for setting up the documentation for a project will need
to change.
