Imho quite easy to resolve: use the community logos per default for builds

that indeed sounds like a senseful idea. What do others think?

Its the logical conclusion. Do we think this is a desirable thing
however ? rather than a corner the rules paint us into that force
maintainable of duplicate logos, etc.

It makes the whole thing much more consistent, therefore it makes a
lot of sense to me.

The tm rule then boils down to: stuff from the official tdf/libo
website - TDF mark permitted. Stuff from elsewhere: TDF mark not
permitted, unless permission explicitely granted.

+1

So, if OpenSUSE wants to use the TDF logo in the distro all they need do
tis ask - but if 3 guys on an IRC channel decide to roll their own Linux
Distro, then on day one it would be the Community Logo.

[Side note - hopefully when future decisions are made to allow
commercial operators to use the TDF mark the community will be involved
in that decision, in some way]
