Problem with Squeeze Artwork



Hi debian-desktop participants, hi debian-legal fellows,
I've just noticed that a default theme was chosen for squeeze:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-desktop/2010/11/msg00077.html

The winner seems to be
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianArt/Themes/SpaceFun
The theme is nice and released under the GNU GPL v2: congratulations
and thanks to Valessio Brito!

However, I think there's an issue that would prevent its inclusion in
Debian main, unless some images are modified.
A number of images in this theme include a derivative work of the
Debian Open Use Logo with "Debian":
http://www.debian.org/logos/openlogo.svg
which, unfortunately, does *not* comply with the DFSG:
http://www.debian.org/logos/#open-use

See
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2010/06/msg00009.html
and several bugs (such as #603286, #587668, ...).

I think those images in the SpaceFun theme should be modified so that
only the swirl without "Debian" is used:
http://www.debian.org/logos/openlogo-nd.svg
This logo (without the "Debian" text) is DFSG-free, as it is released
under the terms of the Expat license:
http://www.debian.org/logos/#open-use



P.S.: I am subscribed to -legal, but not to -desktop, please remember
to Cc: -legal on replies.  Thanks in advance!
