Hi Bernhard,

I agree - but why kick it to the SC - why not start the discussion on
the general discussion list and lets work out what it would mean to be a
local team - what general rules folks would want in place, what
responsibilities and requirements would be expected and the like.

IMO right now any decision about a logo policy is premature, whether it
is by your team, marketing or the SC, on this particular point - as
there is still no definition of what a local team is, what it can and
can not do. The use of a custom logo is only one piece of that.

I know that there never seems to be enough time for these kinds of
discussions, but that is never going to change - so speaking for myself
I would make time this coming week to actively engage in a discussion

Hi Drew,

Thanks for waking me up ;-)

Without having looked at any details, I propose to consider a temporary 
solution.
The people need something, and obviously over time it will be all 
thought, worked out, and discussed. In order that they do not have to 
wait, we can allow them to use logo X for purpose Y just until the 
moment that we agreed on a more permanent solution, with a maximum of 12 
months (not too much stress on our selves ;-) )

Obviously, a temporary use is not perfect, and will give some wrong 
interpretation in some (corner) cases. But misinterpretation will be 
around in any case, if only because people do not read finely grained 
rules, or even consider the existence of such. And also, better some 
misunderstanding, than the bad of people not able to for their and ouw 
project what they want and need to do.

Just my 2 €c,

sponsoring for the Hackfest

Hello,

as you know, there will be a Hackfest in Munich from September 2nd to 4th.

We have the offer from a service provider that they sponsor one round of
food and beverages for all attendees, roughly about 250 €. In return,
they would like to be mentioned somewhere.

I see no problems with this, given this is an offer we make everyone, so
multiple sponsors can join, and we do not prefer one single corporation.

Any objections?

Thanks,
Florian
