This does not mean those Debian developers have free reign to use the
trademark however they wish.  Debian developers acting independently should
absolutely be expected to honor the trademark the same as anyone else;
having your key in the keyring doesn't give you a free pass to dilute
Debian's trademarks to the project's detriment.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
