Oh, and it looks like "Ubuntu GNOME" (with or without "Edition") may
fall outside the fair use policy for the GNOME Foundation's trademark,
so best to politely check with them too, if you haven't already:


I can introduce you to Karen Sandler, if it's helpful. She's not only
the current Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation, she's also an
amazing free software lawyer who helped a lot of projects back when she
worked at the Software Freedom Law Center.
