just wait a a little before this update
I will end it first

so I will made a "contract/cession" (to be more official)
if somebody with a better english level (Baptiste?) could correct it, it would be great :-)

and a "white sheet" (…a stupid how-to-use-logo made by all advertising companies for their clients)

After this, you could push your update (and add a link to download the whole files for example, with sources and the rights you give to the end user. Personnally I'll give all rights to you, but you don't have to give all to the end user, eg: you could change the logo as its owner, but end-user does not have to ;-))

PS: do you have a "legal structure", an association, etc? who/what will be the legal owner?
PPS: juridic is a bull***t, so we have to well define "everything" to avoid anymore trouble ;-)

I don't mind about the "é", do whatever you want ;-)
