Intention is that you replace the existing image with your own logo and keeping it with the same name (and file type). If you use /images/mylogo.gif, then you have also to adapt the theme, backend.php, etc, while there the standard location is used:
$tpl->assign('image_url'XOOPS_URL '/images/logo.png');

I'm quite agree with belia,

It would be nice to be able to easily change (upload) the logo of the website as you change the website name in the admin panel.

By automatically resizing the logo in differents sizes, it could be next used for header, pdf,... and all module which could call it!

Problem is that it is not in an uploadable location (file permissions). Moving it to somewhere else would invalidate all existing themes.
It is considered to be a one time action. You do it only once at the start of the new site, so, automating it, is only a needless effort and complication.

Maybe the installation manual should have an alinea on how to adapt the logo, favicons, etc..

i know what belia.are saying..and i agree with it

maybe make it standard to put the logo in example uploads-site-logo folder

put in the site logo manager preferences as example

which logo to use...logo.gif...logo.png

and make it standard in themes...a smarty variable or something like that

please be more creative....there should be an easy way...

I Love Xoops

I don't find replacing by uploading /images/logo.png difficult.

Creating a logo manager is necessary.
The hard part is that the manager needs to be friend to both back end, site management or resource management, and front end, theme design.

On admin side, for administrators:
logo controller responsible for
logo upload
logo browse
logo edit, mainly for cropping and resizing

On view side, for theme designers:
We could build some widget-like plugin, which will be available in next major version:
<{logo size=84:31}>
which will be matched tohttp://img.xoops.url/images/logo/logo-84x31.png

Keep in mind that if it's used in 2.5 or in any version (except 3.0) it would break EVERY theme that calls on that, and there are a lot who do.
