Where to send mascot graphic adjustment proposals


Hey Michael,

I asked around and doesnâ??t look like we've previously been asked to edit a mascot after itâ??s initial creation, so thereâ??s no specific process in place currently. Youâ??re blazing a new trail here! 

We definitely want to gather consensus from project contributors before making changes. The best way to do that would be the openstack-discuss mailing list with [designate] in the subject line of any messagesâ??as documented here <https://docs.openstack.org/project-team-guide/open-community.html#mailing-lists>. Adding the tag should help other designate contributors notice and respond with their input. 

If you can gather consensus there, you would then email community at openinfra.dev <mailto:community at openinfra.dev> regarding the change. 

So the process would be: propose change via mailing lists => gather consensus => contact the foundation. 

And thanks again for flagging the broken email address and the alignment issue on the page.

Hope this helps! 

-James

Maybe in the context of a group of mascots + text having all of them vertically aligned looks less strange but on its own I think it would look better aligned to the base.
