All,

(I just subscribed, so I hope this is not a FAQ).

Looking at
<http://files.opensuse.org/opensuse/en/5/51/OpenSUSE_Trademark_Guidelines.p
df>

I don't see addressed a situation were a opensuse community member
creates docs like:

http://files.opensuse.org/opensuse/en/1/17/Zypper-cheat-sheet-1.pdf
http://files.opensuse.org/opensuse/en/3/30/Zypper-cheat-sheet-2.pdf

which are referenced in:

http://en.opensuse.org/Zypper/Usage/11.1
Under Quick Reference

Am I missing it?
I don't see any issue here. As far as I can see he's using the original
openSUSE logo in a relationship with some docu on zypper which is clearly part
of openSUSE. So I'd count it as Fair Use which are described in the Trademark
Guide lines [1]
..We acknowledge and support your right to make "fair use" of the openSUSE
Marks, and do not mean to suggest with these Guidelines that our permission is
required in such cases...

[1] http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSUSE_Trademark_Guidelines_v2#Fair_Use

If not, could the guideline have a section added to cover community
created docs of this kind. I personally think it is a great doc and
would like to see more of the same.

fyi: These were created by Juan De Vincenzo <juandevincenzo@xxxxxxxxx>
