And who cares if the cube is folded or not? A logo is meant to be
simple and easily distinguished; not to deliver an obvious message.
Besides, it's no cube. The three orange areas represent the three
main goals of pkgsrc: simplicity, portability and flexibility. The
orange colour is the same optimistic tone that was used in the NetBSD
flag (it's co-incidental, of course). The White Stripes bring music
into the picture, and pkgsrc is the mix of all that, freed from that
vowelly need of pronouncibility.
A cube. I mean, puh-lease.
