Hi Alexandros,

OK.  Perhaps right above the ‘name’ field of the package, you could add
a link to the trademark policy above and state that Guix has a written
permission to use it, with a link to your message?  That way we’ll have
an audit trail.

Your interpretation seems correct to me.

I don’t see any reason not to keep “Zrythm” as things stand.

Thoughts anyone?  (Cc: maintainers.)

Apart from that, the patches LGTM!

Thank you,
