In case you didn't follow the thread about the readme. I thought it
would be good for the Boost brand if libraries logos were more
consistent (in style) than it's now
(https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/wiki/LibrariesLogos). Those new logos
- minimalistic and have clean, Boost-like style,
- clearly connected with Boost,
- created for a bigger number of libraries.
I've decided to use Boost logo as a base and to add a small, white
abstraction representing the library, in the lower-left hexagon. This
way, they're also consistent with the original Boost logo in the case if
someone wanted to use it instead. You can find logos here:
https://github.com/awulkiew/boost-logos. The example set is also
presented in the README (at the bottom of the page).
What do you think about this idea?
