Hi Mihamina,

They contact me and explain me that I do not have the right to use git
in the part of name of gitbull.

As fare as i have understand for gitorious, github, gitlab, they have
created their service before the trademark. (but don't know for new
incommers you can find on search engine ...)

The SFC have been be very correct with me, but that represent a trouble.

I have now to stand for the git committe response ... hope for a license
of use to close the situation.

I have never meet that trouble with GNU (which is also trademark) (which
i have learned both the same time)

Well that is the reason for the need of LibreMark.

To have a form of protection to our freedom, but stay free to use the
things at the time it is not to disturb the job done by thus before.
