It's great that you heard back, but too bad they don't want to let you
use Cantarell.

I'm newish to the list, and wasn't around for the previous logo
discussions, but I went back and looked at the archives. I really
liked the way Cantarell looked with the Ubuntu logo. Oh well.

One thing I was wondering about: why the lack of space between the two
words? It seems pretty clear that the name is two separate words with
a space between (from the Web site, the social media pages, this
mailing list...), so I wonder if having no space in the logo might add
some confusion.

Thanks for all your work!
