By hearing from Paul (or asking directly), perhaps?

Many patches do come after a thread of discussion, and at the end of
such a discussion I do not often explicitly ask "yeah, that sounds
like a good way to go, please make it so", so technically it is
correct that many patches come unasked, but my "nobody asked for"
was not about your patch.  It was about the "new logo".


The site may be called "official", but Scott exercises fairly large
amount of editorial discretion without community input on occasions,
and because he is such a nice guy, we let some questionable things
go from time to time.  Some things on that site are not always the
community concensus, not necessarily in the sense that Scott decided
against community concensus but in the sense that the community did
not feel a need to even have a concensus and Scott chose to go one
way.  The new logo is one of these things.  Some in the community
may not be enthusiastic about it and prefer the original, but they
do not feel strongly enough to send in patches and gather the
community support to "fix" it.

And that goes both ways.  If the logo of the "official" site is not
something so important that can change without gaining
community consensus first, then it equally is within the editorial
discretion of individual git package's maintainer to keep using the
original not the updated logo.
