One thing I'm curious about is who actually holds the copyright on the
logo? We haven't yet placed any assets into ownership of the Inkscape
Foundation, so while I like the way the voting is going, I don't think
it would actually give legal permission for use of the logo.
Of course, this opens up a larger issue (which I think mental posed at
the outset), of transferring assets like this into Inkscape Foundation
What I think we can do legally is provide a 'vote of confidence' for the
owner(s) of the logo to give permission for its use. But I don't think
our vote alone would be sufficient for permission.
