In reply to your thoughts, please advise if the 1. logo border not
being well rendered is for the 1st or 2nd file? Is that for the icon
with corners? If it's for the 2nd file, there's not much I can do as I
got both files for the icon from the artwork wiki. I don't have the
expertise to re-work it from scratch. I used the 200 px image and
reduced it to 125x125. 

In reply to number 2 and 3, there's now a 3rd file uploaded (co6bg1_6denmkp.jpg) to
http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=4699 which uses the Denmark font for
the '6' version number. I had to do a bit of searching to find the
font, it wasn't in the Debian repo's. I attempted to emboss it and the
result wasn't good. Also attempted to match the color of the CentOS
type but with the 6 being flat and the other type being raised, it
didn't look right to me. So I left it as a dark purple. 

Personally I prefer the 2nd upload (co6bg1a-1.jpg) with the glossy
italic 6, even though the font may not be technically correct, and it
may not look 'modern' enough. (?)

If someone would like the 14.5mb xcf file (just compressed to 2.7mb) to
make your own revisions, please send a private email and I'll send it
along. (If several people want it I may upload it to my website and
send along a download link...)

Cheers,  Cia
