Re: Please update the debian logo of your service


first of all: dear publicity team, thanks for handling this so very well. Even 
though these are very sad circumstances, I was proud and happy being part of 
Debian when I read Laura's mail here yesterday. Same goes for Ian's memorial 
event at FOSDEM. Thank you.

While I think this is a technically sound proposal how to do hotlinking, I'm 
not sure I want to do that for the services I maintain, as a matter of 
principle. Hotlinking to a different site is bad, as this leaks visitor 
information to a different entitity. Granted, it's a different entity in the 
same organisation, but still.
