that is not true.
The intent to change the logo - or create one - was announced and a
"contest" for choosing a logo was announced and entries were solicited
well before the choice of logo was done.

That is true and I think that may have been a poor choice but it probably
would have resulted in even more noise on the lists rather than less.

Not completely left out, but less involved than might be ideal.

I just wish the FreeBSD community had more ability to create meaningful
logos.   Their talents seem to all lie in the area of creating and
managing software systems...

By the way, here where I work,  they made a big fuss and came up with
a new 'logo' that we are required to have on our cards and such and
it is totally meaningless and unrelated to what our department is
or does.  It is, at least a little bit artsey and attractice, but
I think this logo problem is endemic in the field.
