For whoever takes this up: I made a big table with all of the existing
logo translations and some that I asked people for:
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Cbrown1023/Logos>. This is a
large amount of the work. What remains is creating logos that haven't
been created yet and installing it in new wikis (changing $wgLogo).
Then we need to figure out what's still missing and see about reaching
out to get more translations.

Once that's all done, someone needs to verify that the logos that
people created and updated actually meet the visual identity
guidelines. A lot of them are too big or too small or
