Johannes, agreed on all counts.

And Dave is clearly a talented guy, so he can do as he please with the

So here's one more data point for him: what I really liked -- a lot -- about
the first one was the strong colors, movement, and sense of things "coming
together". That's the metaphor of Yadis captured wonderfully.

The second version solved the "seeing the Y" problem but to my eye (and my
wife's) lost the arrows and strong colors that made it so dynamic.

Suggestion (wish I were a photoshop wiz and could show this): keep the motif
and deep colors of the first one but just pull the arrows out enough to make
room for a grey "y" into which each of them point. That way (maybe) it would
read "Yadis" but also keep the wonderful feel of the first one.

Having gone through a few "collaborative" logo review processes over  
the years, let me just say -- to nobody in particular -- that a group  
reviewing logo proposals never reaches consensus -- it's art after  
all -- except on eventually having been successful at having driven  
the artist nuts. ;-) Who, in this case, is unpaid.

There is always the opportunity for everybody to unpack their own  
photoshop copies, or whatever. Unfortunately (or fortunately) there  
isn't a wiki version of graphics design software yet ;-)

Obviously it's up to Dave to determine how much time and effort he  
wants to spend on this.
