The Debian Open Use Logo License is generally considered to be
non-DFSG free.  However, it appears to be a widely held belief
that Debian should have _some_ logo that is DFSG-free, and that
the license of the open logo should be changed to make this so.
I think because of the latter, there has never been a logo purge
of main.  Perhaps an attempted logo purge would convince SPI to
act on this matter.

See this thread for additional commentary:


It's somewhat amusing that debian-legal routinely convinces people
to change to DFSG-free licenses, but can't seem to affect its own
