Continuing our "move discussion to list" adventures...
Bernie brought up an OOo4Kids request to display our logo. Tomeu and I
were unable to find the original text of the request - what is the
project asking for? We're blocking until we get that text - does anyone
know where to find it?
A related motion, from Bernie:
MOTION: To pre-approve the entire class of requests such as "can I put
Sugar Labs logo in my partners/acknowledgments page?", as they are very
frequent and hard to abuse for bad purposes.
For the record: if we passed this, we'd need to agree on a specific
change to our TM policy (http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Trademark).
Discussion with Tomeu in #sugar-meeting just now led to the following
conclusions (I'll speak for myself here, but I think Tomeu agrees):
1. We should automatically let other parties display *their* endorsement
of Sugar - for instance, "I <3 and support Sugar Labs"
banners/buttons/badges, because that is about the other party saying
something about SL.
2. The other way around - something that implies that SL endorses
something else, is exactly why we have the TM usage guidelines and
request procedure, and Ooo4Kids should follow it - if their request
falls in one of the already-automated categories, then sure, it's
automated... if it isn't, then it will need to be voted on.
It's not clear whether Ooo4Kids is asking for #1 or #2, so we're
ultimately still blocking on finding the text of that request. Please
help! (If you know who the original requestor of this motion is, please
let them know to get in touch with us.)
PS: Please, please, please link to the original request/motion/proposal
text when listing stuff as a SLOBs agenda item, it makes the meeting go
much faster! This is the second item we're blocked on moving forward
with due to lack of context.
