Re: [Spi-trademark] Re: Bug#265352: grub: Debian splash images for Grub


SPI isn't Debian's master.
SPI can not change licensing on Debian's property without direction from the Debian project. And the requested change is not trademark-related, it is entirely about copyright terms.

Please arrange for your project to officially change the license. The project leader can do it by fiat (it is a simple thing, after all) or you can do it through your resolution process. Tell us when you are done.

I am the mantiner of the new grub-splashimages debian package and was
recently submitted a very nice Debian splashimage [0]. The splashimage makes
use of the Debian Open Use Logo [1] but unfortunately due to default licencing 
and to the very vague copyright notice, and confirmed by debian-legal on
a thread regarding this [2] the logos are not compatible with the DFSG
[3]. This is horrible. Debian should set an example and use the DFSG
for its artwork. We would like to ask for a change of the license to the 
Open Use Debian logo so that it is compatible with the DFSG.

Looking forward for a response,
