Hi list,

I am using Xen and I want to set up a german community site all about Xen.
I´d like to use the logo
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/graphics/xenlogo.gif or
even modify it to fit my pages layout.
Would this be ok for you guys?



I think Philipp raised an interesting question, as I was also willing to use the logo as a basis for a community site logo.

This makes me ask a more general question on Intellectual Property : Xen's source code is clearly under GPL, but logo, documentation and even the yet-to-be-official wiki have no mention of licence, owner nor of usage rights (see http://www.debian.org/logos/ for an example).

I believe that is it the right moment to solve all possible IP issues once and for all : Having a contributing community is probably the biggest advantage Xen has against proprietary solutions, and true community support can't happen serenely if such things are not clear enough.
