It means we'll start with a professionally designed logo concept and start
the discussions from there.  And when I say "professionally designed," I
mean "designed by someone who has been following the list for weeks, has
seen the discussions and the other logo ideas, has mapped out the messages
that we're trying to communicate with the Fedora brand, and has come up
with some pretty good stuff, and is working on a bit of polish yet."

>From there, the discussion begins.  Improvements/changes will be
considered.  If it's universally hated, we'll go back do the drawing
board.  And bearing in mind that Fedora is a meritocracy as well as a
democracy, the voice of the Real Designer (tm) will carry more weight as
we seek to build a consensus.
