Re: Use of the Debian name for websites

I searched Google and the archives for this, but never found a solid
answer. I, along with a few others, would like to start a website using
the Debian name in the domain (we're using DotDebian.org as a working
name for right now). The goal/intent of the site is to provide new user
friendly forums, how-to's etc. This will focus mainly on users who have
been using one of the Debian based distros (i.e. Knoppix, MEPIS, etc.)
and want to migrate their systems over to Debian GNU/Linux itself.
We plan to post a disclaimer stating that we are not endorsed nor
affiliated with Debian or SPI. All content on the site will be licensed
under the applicable Debian or GNU accepted licenses, meaning all
original content of any kind generated or developed by or for the site
will be free as in beer and freedom.
If this is acceptable use, do we need any type of official permission
from Debian, or may we simply go ahead with the plan as laid out? Also,
is it acceptable to use the "Open Use" logo as part of any graphics on
Thanks in advance.
FWIW, the idea is being scrapped anyway in favor of supporting the
existing sites. Thanks.
