hmm...

a) "Only the logos that bear the exact mention of the software name with

official use of TDF as an entity, for instance on splash screens from
software builds compiled by the Document Foundation"

b) "You may use the Marks without prior written permission (subject to
the following terms):

1. To refer to the LibreOffice software in substantially unmodified
form.

"Substantially unmodified" means built from the source code provided by
TDF, possibly with minor modifications including but not limited to: the
enabling or disabling of certain features by default, translations into
other languages, changes required for compatibility with a particular
operating system distribution, the inclusion of bug-fix patches, or the
bundling of additional fonts, templates, artwork and extensions)."

So does a packager of LibreOffice, like Red Hat, SuSe, Debian, Ubuntu,
etc and so forth who compiles it themselves for their distro, have to
change the splashscreen away from the default one which has "The
Document Foundation" in it. i.e. a or b ?
