any better proposal that make it easier to market and identify OpenVAS
is welcome. Please have in mind that the techies don't have a problem
either way. Think about journalists, decision makers etc.

I agree from the hacker point of view and I strongly object from the marketing
point of view. If you want to make something known, easily identifiable, etc.
you need simple messages. Well, I am not saying I am a marketing expert,
but I definitely learned some lessons ;-)
BTW: We updated the logo some time ago. Its in SVN and already used
on the web page.
