Hi Tyler,

I'm attaching here some draft guidelines that I did some time ago for
OSGeo.  I've simplified them somewhat in response to some questions from
the mail lists in the past.  

I think this would be a good starting point for VisCom to consider. 

In particular, see my comment regarding approval for logo usage -- which
is inserted in a comment box within the document.  Something for your
consideration (and the board's probably).  

Best regards,

I don't think there is any implying going on, just more 'hot potatoe'
with the whole logo/logo use/image topic.  The board sees that the logo
usage issues have to be ironed out sooner than later.  Since it's
already on our plate (or somewhere on our todo list) to put up some
usage guidelines, then we should still try to.  But if we can't do it
soon-ish then the board will still want to find a way to get it done.
If that makes sense...

But I think your trademark page is already a good start.
