>>> - think that a circular logo is better suited for a community project

>>> - The text part is only for spacing reference, used plain Vera Sans
>>> font, but this part still needs some love.
>>> - I like very much the logo number 16 too, but found it too symmetric

>>> 19).
>>> - Maybe the spikes seem a little bit aggressive but the osteoderms are
>>> ok because Tanglu will have the dragon skin (Konqi :-)
>>> - At the end, inverted the blue and greed colors just to associate the
>>> osteoderms with the green color (green = more organic than blue).
>>> - The logo is scalable and editable because it's made of vectors, I
>>> will send online the Inkscape SVG file soon.
