That might depend on the number of requests that have accumulated in 
recent weeks.

Many of these request are sent by journalists (e.g. providing OOo as 
part of an open source DVD as magazine add) and authors (e.g. screen 
shots for a publication). Another large group are individual open source 
enthusiasts who just want to put the OOo logo on their website to link 
the download page. IMHO, it would be easiest to point everyone on this 
list, let them briefly summarize their concern and then giving them a 
preliminary permission. Next, they can send us the results of using the 
OOo logo or trademark, so we can make a final decisions while having the 
real context available.
