 to the one we have on the website
 > I can switch to this logo for now, although it might be worth discussing
 the logo situation, as we have several different logos (globes, onions,
 etc) appearing in different places on the Tor website and in the Tor
 Browser package and because of the heterogeneity, I don't think they are
 serving the usual purpose of logos, which is to be quickly recognizable.
 <bikeshed> The onion I used is, I think, the most unique and visually
 appealing version of the several onions Tor (Browser) uses. </bikeshed>

 Yes, I agree. I think having a new bug proposing to change/discuss that is
 the right way to go, though, as it is more or less orthogonal and might
 require more thought and input from other teams (legal, press...).
 Avoiding to grow the Tor Browser logo zoo further seemed to be a good
 starting point for me for now (first use just one logo, if possible, then
 discuss switching it in all places of relevance).
