You mean "real guys" build things with real stuff that lasts? ;)

Jokes aside, I like the proposals by Elio and Brennan. I like in
particular the written "reproducible builds" in #23. But I have some
criticism about the proposed logo itself. I love the "impossible form",
but isn't reproducible builds about making the impossible possible?
Could the B) form merge on the bottom right, instead of being open -
this would maybe better convey the idea of a closed circuit.

The cubes are not so much my favorites, nor is the double circle-gon.
