Logo license?

Eric A. Borisch-2
Anyone know of any (license) issues with someone using our logo (https://www.macports.org/img/macports-logo-top.png) when linking to MacPorts as an installation option for their software?

Thanks,
  - Eric

I would say it is appropriate to use our logo when linking to our web site, but people should not use that png copy of the logo, which was rendered specifically for our web site (and includes a reflection that is probably not right for other web sites' designs). Anyone wanting to use our logo should use the svg version, or should render a png from the svg at a size appropriate to their web site.
