If you want to include all or part of an openSUSE Mark in the title or
subtitle of a publication such as a book or magazine, you should seek our
permission (see "Contact Information" below to request permission).

Does it mean dat any Magazine that makes a review on the last openSUSE
version (I don't speek of a special magazine with a CD inside) should
ask the permission before writing it? Is the publication the magazine
itself (in that case if they do the cover they should ask permission)
or an article (in that case I think it goes a bit to far, at least for
the use of the brand name)? Shouldn't it be clarified?

This is not meant for reviews, but if the name of the magazine itself is using
the term "openSUSE", so for example, if you want to publish a magazine, which
is called the "openSUSE magazine", you need to ask for permission first.

I thought that "use openSUSE trademark in the title of a publication" clearly
expresses that. If I'm wrong here, do you have a suggestion how to make the
text more clearer?
