You could make a screenshot from where the original icons are shown,
then re-encode those tiny 16x16px thingies into new *.ico files with
GIMP. This is sorta like taking a photograph (if in doubt, take an
actual photo), or a bitmap font (where neither the font nor the indi‐
vidual glyphs fall under copyright law), so only trademark law matters,
and Don already said Debian can “probably” use them to refer to the
sites in question.

I question that 16x16px logos fall under the copyright law at all.
Maybe some of the picture metadata, at best (hence the suggestion
to re-encode).
