It is my impression by reading the guidelines that the foot logo without
the GNOME text (as shipped by gnome-about) isn’t subject to the same
terms as the one with the text (as shipped by gnome-icon-theme). This
would be similar to what we have for the Debian swirl.

So to be more precise, we’d like to know what are the rules (both
trademark and copyright) for the GNOME foot logo without the GNOME text
under it.
