Hello UmTRX list.   We've started a discussion about open source telecom
t-shirts.   From Alexander:

I think we should start making t-shirts to support open-source telecom
(and our project). I've posted a call for ideas in my Russian blog -
please contribute! In English too!

Just the first thought that popped into my head.  I'm not overly attached
to it.   I'm sure someone can up with a better visual representation of
Open Source Telecom.

You should create a word.

Yes, background color.  I like white t-shirts too, but I always spill
coffee on them.  A slightly darker shade, say grey, masks stains.
