I have a suggestion.

I propose we launch a contest around this idea of a logo.

But the challenge would not involve Scribus only.

We could ask the Libre Graphics community — and more people — to enter the
contest to create a logo with the following catch phrase :

"Made with F/LOSS" or "Made with Free/Libre Open Source Software"

The logo should have a black and a colored version and should be easy to

Made with Scribus is diminishing in my view as it is unlikely someone is
going to create a page layout without the help of other tools, like
Inkscape and GIMP, at least. Without mentionning the fonts as well...

This contest could go on from March 1st to May 1st and we would pick the
winner in Vienna, during the next LGM.

How does that sound?
