We are *not* a GNU project. Our relationship to the FSF is cooperative and
closer then any time before the last years (we hae been a GNU project once).

But still, Debian is under the umbrella of SPI, not FSF.

We *can't* use the GNU because we would have a hard time trademarking it.
Please accept that.

We don't need artists, we need designers (not that design is no art, and
artists can't design. My point is that we need more Liechtenstein and less
van Gogh).
