I had wanted to CC the VDG list, but I used the wrong address. Now with the 
correct one.

 No, not that one.

 We are currently using the KDE logo with the Plasma brand. This is broken
 branding. If we are to establish Plasma as a brand, we need to use the
 Plasma logo.
 If we keep using the community instead of the product logo all over Plasma,
 we can never break the "KDE = the desktop" misconception.
 And I'm pretty sure people will still recognize that they're using the same
 workspace as shown in tutorials even if the logo in the bottom-left corner
 is different.
 The VDG is really clear that this is our collective advice (I've CCed the
 VDG list so anybody who objects to that could speak up).
