I was not handling the logo queue at that time, according to my records 
Diana Fong handled that ticket. The only record I see of the ticket is a 
request from Peter on January 23 2007 which was picked up by Diana, I 
don't have any record of the exchange though since we were using ORTS at 
the time and it was quite broken.

As the current owner of the logo approval queue, I have no problem with 
the Tango-ified Fedora logo icon being included in the Fedora Tango 
package but would prefer the Tango-ified icon *not* be the default as it 
is not really a pure representation of the Fedora logo in the sense that 
it takes some liberties with the official logo usage guidelines.
