please don't use the orange/grey combination.  it's a really poor choice
of colours which is not contrast enough and has serious trouble with
melting into background different than white or black.

the logo as it is now doesn't work in monochrome.

i don't see the reason of splitting pkgsrc into two words when it's one
(it's even a registered trademark of TNF).

other than that, i like the underlying idea.
