I almost repasted the letter I sent to a while back, but
decided to rewrite it instead.  If you don't want to read the long version, I
just want to make sure it's ok to keep the name [1]. 
Also, I'd like to know if it was possible for us to use one of these "proposed"
logos for our wiki:

For the story, read on...

I've got this "Mozilla Materials" project going on, a few of you may know about
it.  We had moved from the wiki when it became buggy and very
slow (oddly, the day after we left they re-fixed it and now it's fine, but still
just a knowledgebase) to the wiki.  After some talks with
Rebron, it was realized that this is a "Developers Only Wiki" and that
SpreadFirefox was for the end users marketing.  While the spreadfirefox idea had

use it.

As well, I was hoping to be able to use a logo with the word "Mozilla" or
"Mozwiki" or something like that, and preferabily with the 'dino' or, if that's
not ok, the 'bare globe' used in things like "Level of use: 2" [2] and this

You'll be pleased to hear that we now have an agreement you can sign to get
permission to do this. Thank you very much for your patience in this matter.

I apologise that it's only a PDF at the moment; I hope to get an HTML version up

If you would like to use a Foundation trademark as part of your domain name, you
just need to fill in a copy, return it to us by postal mail, and wait for the reply.

If you have any questions, please contact
