Bernie and I had a short convo in IRC after SLOBs on what we should keep
an eye out for in order to make sure his concerns about keeping our
trademark process easy and pleasant for requestees were addressed.
Really short convo, but logs below.
Important stuff below.
14:27:45 IDEA mchua The goal of the trademark approval process is to
make it as much like this as possible: (1) Email us. (2) SLOBs says OK.
14:29:37 IDEA mchua the trademark process doc should reflect this -
basically, "The process is (1) email us, and (2) we'll try to respond
with a decision within a week, but can't always promise to do so, and
(3) we'll generally say yes - see some examples of prior proposals and
the discussion about them and how long it took them to go through."
14:30:22 IDEA mchua have a Licensing clerk who's responsible for
initially receiving those proposals and helping them go through SLOBs in
a timely manner
14:30:33 IDEA mchua create an email alias for said clerk (licensing at sl.o)
