I think what we would appreciate most is to benefit from your
development activities. If you've fixed any bugs while preparing your
release or implemented new features, please file bug reports (together
with patches) in our Bug Tracking System. Since you've taken unstable
and stabilized it, I'd imagine that you have some fixes to offer.
Also, is your system LSB compliant? unstable has currently some
outstanding issues, so if you're done work on this area, then we'd
certainly appreciate feedback and patches.

You can use the "Open Use" logo pretty freely for this, and use the
Debian name as long as you don't say that you're the "official Debian"
distribution - saying that your system is based on Debian is perfectly
fine and encouraged. See http://www.debian.org/logos/ for information
on the logo.
