The openSUSE Trademark Guidelines cover the circumstances under which
people can use our openSUSE Trademarks & Logos.
The Guidelines explain the areas where we welcome the use of our
marks, and for all other possible uses we ask the interested parties
make contact to discuss whether permission can be granted or not.
In the past this was permission(a)suse.com, which was primarily used for
gathering requests for SUSE's marks. For openSUSE requests the email
address was jointly monitored by the Chairman on behalf of the Board
so the Project could have a say in the use of our Projects marks.
As of today the correct email address for openSUSE Trademark requests
The Board will now act as the first point of contact and decision
making for requests to use the openSUSE Marks, and will then involves
SUSE Corporate Counsel for final verification.
This better reflects the long-held reality that the openSUSE community
can decide in the use of it's marks, and makes my life easier as I no
longer will have to fish out openSUSE related requests from the SUSE
As part of this change to the Guidelines, I have also updated the
relevant wiki page  with the correct list of openSUSE Trademarks -
it looks like wires got crossed somewhere and the wiki page was
suggesting the openSUSE Project had involvement with Trademarks that
are nothing to do with our project.
