I just offered my slight modifications since I just joined
the board.

Hmmm, pretty good analogy.

BTW, it could be that the "element" logo is the small/short
version of the logo.  I think it's a quick'n dirty way to
convey both repository and version, possibly currency.  E.g.,
"Legacy" when a version has been made Legacy.

There are lots of games one could play with the design.

You could _always_ come up with a fancy, "larger logo" for
more completeness.  I just like the element logo because it's
direct and detailed without overloading the viewer.
