Ok, we've been having a bit of a nova core private email thread just to
figure out where everyone stood.

Milestone 3 is a really hard time to have new requests pop up, for
anything really, because right now the whole team is pretty heads down
trying to only no more than 50% of people that are trying to land
features during the cycle that won't make it.

To summarize the sentiment, I think there are many folks that aren't
enthusiastic about mascots. However there are also some that would like
to move forward with something, and not have Nova represented by a
broken image link.

I think given what's been on the public lists, and some of this back
channel, marking Nova down for "star / supernova" would be fine. I
imagine the creative folks working on logos can come up with something
cool around that.
