Hello everybody,

I think it would be good to discontinue the "Debian Official Use Logo" if we
agree that it is causing more problems than it solves.  To avoid keeping
non-free material in the current website, maybe it can point instead to the CVS
archive?  Then the official logo can be mentionned very briefly, for instance.

  Debian used to have an "official use logo" (see http://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc/webwml/webwml/english/logos/officiallogo-50.jpg
  for example), but does not recommend it anymore as its license is not free.
