debian-legal is a mailing list that provides guidance to developers about
whether a given piece of software is distributable under DFSG terms.  It
does not give advice to third parties regarding the legality of particular
uses of software, nor does it have the authority to grant licenses to Debian

If you have questions about whether your intended use of the logo is
permitted under the existing Debian license, please consult your legal
counsel.  If you wish to request a license exception to use the logo in a
way not permitted by the standing license, please direct such requests to
the Debian Project Leader (leader@debian.org).
