Did I or did I not say on #svn yesterday that Subverion needs a logo? So
I played around a bit, looking for ideas. One of the things I tries was
looking up "subversion" on http://zhongwen.com/zi.htm, but I didn't like
the ideographs. Then I tried just "version", and got back two
characters: the firs, "ban3", means "printing blocks, edition"; the
second, "ben3", means "root, origin, source; basis" -- *and* it looks a
bit like an inverted tree, complete with a cross-branch merge marker! :-)

The result is at http://www.xbc.nu/svn/subversion.png. It also makes a
very nice icon, even at 16x16 pixels.
