Can you clarify a bit? You think that anyone should be able to use the
logo in any way?

I think that if our trademark guidelines restrict too much our extended
community (by extended, I mean groups like downstreams, LUGs, etc.),
then things are broken.

This could be because the guidelines are unnecessarily too strict or
because the trademark requires too strict guidelines, in which case the
trademark is actually hurting us, probably more than it protects us.

Btw, I suddenly wonder: if what is trademarked is the "foot + GNOME
text" image, then is usage of only the foot covered by the trademark?
