THAT SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE THE FUNCTION OF COMMONS.
Sorry to shout. Commons accepts these images (despite the
contradiction with our policy). WMF accepts us hosting them (despite
the contradiction with the recent Licensing Resolution). If people
want to push for any change to resolve these contradictions, it should
be to ask WMF to release a statement stating the obvious, that it is
acceptable for Commons to host non-free logos copyrighted by WMF.
*Not* create a WMFLogos-Commons, *or* have the images deleted.
