Bug#587668: The Debian open logo with "Debian" is not compliant to the Debian policy
As I previoulsy said to Alexander Reichle-Schmehl, there's no clue
clearly leading to the fact that the debian text written beside the
swirl was done from scratch. It's unlikely this is the case. The
upstream author may enlight this point to end the discussion and close
this bug if it may be closed.

Given that the package maintainers have stated 2 months ago that they
do not understand the problem and the reporter have failed to provide
more information to explain it better, perhaps it is best to reduce
the severity or close the bug as wontfix?
I suspect the issue at hand is in the cross-section of copyright and
trademark law, and based on some misunderstanding on what is allowed
or not under copyright law, but must admit I do not understand what
problem this bug is reporting either.
