I've been asked to logo question at least a dozen times, but all
off-list, as far as I remember. I don't think this was an unreasonable
thread at all: there was a genuine question, considering all the
already existing typographical logos in our community.

I find that when I am writing about the 'language', I tend to use
'LuaTeX' (or the logo Lua\TeX, in typeset material) but a simple
'luatex' when referring to the binary or implementation details.

This is what I will keep doing, and I don't really care or mind what
anybody else uses ;)

Best wishes,
