Just for context, creating a logo is something we want to do for swag
(everyone loves swag!) for Stream. This is something that I'd like to
pursue for my own team, the CPE team, who are instrumental in helping
CentOS day to day and Rich pointed us towards the more formal route. I
don't have answers to the questions Alain raises below bar 1 (see inline)

I'd view them as separate conversations for now, if the overall logo gets
an overhaul the Stream logo follows suit. We didn't want to alter the main
image and hit the brand issues ourselves.

I'm answering this as a community member....I like the idea of a process
done in the open for updates, an Open Decision Framework (ODF) kind of
process to help decide on the new logo or modifications would be cool, that
needs the brand guidelines which I'm not privy to.
