Since this seems to be a formal proposal.  I second.  I'd like to see
an end to the issue once and for all.

I see two different votes here:

1) A formal logo license that Debian will use.
2) What we do about the logo (with options a) keep current, b) keep
   current for some amount of time, c) get new one in some manner).
