Hi everyone --regarding the standard Apache Incubator logo (rectangular)
vs. standalone "Powered By", there often are projects/podlings that do
not have logos.


This would be a good way to promote such projects. 



I suspect it won't be *widely* used, but the option is good to have.



Another way to use the standalone "Powered By" logo is in presentations,
etc. Folks often like to make stickers of their "Powered By" logos --we
can do the same with the Incubator.


Speaking of stickers, although we missed the deadline for the group
order ,I can have Incubator stickers if you'd like. Do let me know.


Hope this helps!
