It wasn't a mandate.  I got three kinds of responses (publicly and  

1 Yes, go for it.

2 If we split it up so that it's not a website contest but a contest  
for individual elements (logo, copy, concept, layout) then yes, go  
for it.

3 We're already making an effort on something like this on the zope- 
web list and elsewhere.  (I interpreted this as "no, don't do it".)

I think the split-up contest--response 2--that Joel Moxley proposed  
on the list and others proposed privately to me sounds good.  If  
others feel that it would stomp on their efforts, though, I'm not  
thrilled about angering people who have already spent significant  
time.  I'd like them to step up and be involved, at least to bless  
the contest, and ideally to be a part of it.  If they don't want it,  
then they should say so and see if we can work out a compromise.

We already have two logo entries.  :-)  If I don't see any  
conversation or disagreement about this--or an offer from the ones  
already working on this stuff to organize the contest--then I'll  
propose an invitation email in a day or two.
