The current GNU Mailman logo
The current GNU Mailman logo
My favourite open source project, Mailman, is looking for a new logo.

I volunteer my time to Mailman because I like working with software that helps people communicate, because I like the Mailman community and because I like the other communities it's helped to build. Programming languages may form the foundation for open source software, but Mailman mailing lists often form the foundation for open source communities. And it's not just the open source folk affected by Mailman: Even my local friends have been using mailing lists to communicate for over a decade now. It's just one of those things that has quietly become infrastructure in my life, and in the lives of many other people. Although we don't have particularly precise numbers, it's a reasonable guess that millions of people use Mailman daily.

I'm working on scheduling some of my time so I can work on Mailman 3. Yes, despite the thesis deadlines breathing down my neck. It's worth it.

So if you've got some graphic design ability, I hope you'll be willing to volunteer some of your time for that new logo. :)

Submissions will be open until February 28, 2010.
