Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] Pending new trademark and logo usage license

1 Hi all,
3 In order to better serve the Gentoo Foundation, and in effect the Gentoo community
4 as a whole, an update to the Gentoo Name and Logo License has been developed
5 which better matches the intend of the trademark protection while allowing
6 good community coverage of the "Gentoo brand", and involves a better
7 explanation of those situations that the Gentoo Foundation trustees often
8 got questions about.
10 The draft was posted on the Gentoo NFP mailinglist for a final review, and
11 we are asking the developer community as a whole to take a look at it and
12 give feedback before we finalize this process.
16 If there is no need for further changes, then the license will be put for
17 final approval on one of the subsequent trustee meetings and, if/once
18 approved, the site will be updated with the new license.
20 Wkr,
21 Sven Vermeulen
23 PS Although not strictly development related, we gathered that a license
24 change is important enough to warrant a final call on this mailinglist (with
25 reply-to the gentoo-nfp mailinglist). It is not our intention to spam this
26 mailinglist with all possible trustee news...
