Why does your page still have this comment:

"(There once was an official logo with a baby gnu on it (see above), but
it has been dropped with the separation of Debian and the FSF.)"

We kissed and made up long ago. Below I've quoted this page:


Even if our relationship is such that it isn't appropriate to use a "baby
gnu", the statement is misleading.

Subject: Debian and FSF Cooperate

Some time ago, the Debian group decided to decline continued FSF 
sponsorship. This was followed by some well-meaning but very poorly stated
messages that enraged many Linux participants. 

After an interval of broken communications, Debian and FSF have resumed
cordial relations and are cooperating, even though FSF no longer has the 
control over the project that came with their former sponsorship of
Debian, and Debian will _not_ ask for a resumption of sponsorship. Both
groups have decided that this should not keep us from working together,
and we are confident that we can mend any remaining Linux-FSF schism. 

What will come of this? And end to the annoying and useless "FSF vs.
Linux" net discussion. More support for Linux in GNU software, and more
support for FSF's goals in Linux software. 

To commemorate our decision that GNU and Linux should be partners, we will
resume use of the name "Debian GNU/Linux" for our system.
