In my view, this is decision is about what message GNOME would like
that version of the software to communicate to the public.  Do we want
it to emphasize "This is GNOME", or "Distinguish this from GNOME", or
"This is Ubuntu's GNOME"?

It's clear in general we want to say "This is GNOME."  Is there a
reason to change the message for this case?

Why would we want it to communicate "Distinguish this from GNOME"?  I
won't say there can't be any such reason, but I don't see that there
is one.  I haven't seen any discussion about this in the current
thread.  Does anyone see a reason for this?

I can't see any possible reason for wanting to it communicate "This is
Ubuntu's GNOME".  What good does that do us or our cause?  None that
I can see.

In the absence of something to gain any other choice, I think we
should ask them to use the standard GNOME logo.
