Thank you for the news that no other paths are being pursued. I
am disappointed that a "general trademark policy" based on the
DFSG is not being studied, but any clearer terms would be welcome.
Does this mean that spi-trademark is now elaborating the existing
policy, rather than drafting a new one?
When and where will spi-trademark report next?
Will it contribute to the 2005 SPI Annual Report?
Can you forecast when it will present a policy to spi-board?
I've kept the CCs because I'm not sure whether board or trademark
sets target dates and the answer will probably interest debian-project.
