I was not proposing a logo containing the camel. I was merely pointing
out that you will have no problem using the O'Reilly trademark or with
the DFSG depending on how you plan to *use* the logo.
If it is a logo for Debian to use then there is no problem beyond
negotiation. If it is a part of Debian for end-users, then there is. I
realize that there was a problem with firefox but that was slightly
different (and my family loves 'iceweasel').
Also, for the record, I said "open source" (notice the scare quotes)
because that is the term O'Reilly uses in the context with getting their
permission. I do not use the term the myself (I read the GNU Manifesto
in 1985/6 when I started using emacs, btw).

I think the contest is a great idea. I hope you come up with something
not-too-ugly but I have no real interest in logos and marketing. Nor in
flame-wars over licenses.

See first paragraph.
Apologies for the interruption ... I will go back to lurking ...
