M-F-T isn't there, nor are any other headers that Mutt recognizes.

However, you didn't CC me on this reply (which is what my headers
request, and which is Debian list policy).  It may be that you turned on
an option that makes Pine honor other people's M-F-T headers (which is a
good thing but not the right one).

People have asked "why isn't the official use logo DFSG-free?" on
d-legal in the past, and there was a resulting discussion.  I'm
sure it's happened on other lists, too.

As I understand it, the Official Use Logo indicates offical Debian approval
of a project.  This is enforced by trademark law.  If the logo is made DFSG-
free, anyone would be able to use it, including projects not officially
approved by the Project.  Therefore, that logo can not be DFSG-free, and
therefore, it can not be in main.
