    What is our (Savannah's) policy regarding the inclusion of trademark
    logo images in the source code distribution of a project licensed
    under GNU GPL? Specifically, I have a project at hand which allows the
    distribution of trademark logos in the following terms:

It is no problem if the program contains trademarked images and names,
provided the trademark usage and requirements don't make it difficult
in practice to change the program and publish a modified
version.  In other words, it has to be easy to find and remove the
trademarks, if and when the trademark conditions require this.

        Please note, all images showing "aroundme" or "barnraiser" logos are
        a trademark  of Barnraiser. You can distribute them under the terms
        of the copy license, however you are forbidden to alter them.

This poses no problem at all, since they don't say you have to remove
the trademarks under any condition.
