Can we get more details on this? I'm obviously lacking context, but it
sounds disappointing that downstreams cannot use the GNOME logo to
promote GNOME spins/flavors they're doing. (Saying that as an openSUSE
guy, who's not involved in Ubuntu GNOME in any way :-))

The problem, I guess from discussions when I was still on the board, is that the "Ubuntu GNOME" is just the 
GNOME logo in a circle. That's hardly enough differentiation. Using the GNOME logo on the cover art to show 
that it's built with GNOME would probably alright too.
