In terms of usage rights, we work as community members to contribute under the license a community likes to use just like any other contributor would. For art or other non-code it's usually some variation of Creative Commons: CC-BY-SA, CC-BY-NC, or CC-BY-NC-ND depending on the desires for re-use, commercial use, etc like you mentioned previously. Ironically, James and I had chatted about it before he sent his email and decided to leave the initial email focused on creative feedback vs licensing.

This is a set of agreements specifically for the OpenStack logo itself, which I consider a very different animal since it has a lot of direct commercial use in a multi-billion dollar ecosystem of products and services built around the various projects.
