Cool...I changed the guidelines and the front page to have Public Domain
as an issue up front. I added it as a thing to do before submitting. A
good project for someone would be to design an SVG public domain logo
that we can use on our site. The reason it needs to be svg is that the
gif had a white background and looked bad against the gray--yes, I am
that anal...

Thanks so much for mentioning those issues!
