13:25 <sam> hello there
13:27 <sam> tru_: do you plan on keeping http://www.debian.as/ the way it currently is?
13:32 <sam> because you are currently using the Debian trademark to sollicit donations without making it clear that you are not affiliated with Debian
13:35 <[Peter]> please take that somewhere else
13:37 <sam> where would that be? the paypal account is email@example.com
13:40 <[Peter]> then send an e-mail to that adress.
13:43 <sam> if xmms.org people set up something very close to a phishing website, I don't see it as highly inappropriate to take it to the XMMS IRC channel
13:43 <sam> but I'll write to that address
13:45 <[Peter]> yeah, very nice phising site.
13:45 <[Peter]> I think many people will donate just because there is a debian logo.
13:45 <[Peter]> with no other information

is deliberate. I will also see to it with SPI.
