So you can use Jason's logos or modifications of them, so long as you give 
him credit (just a simple "Original logo by Jason Long, licensed under 
Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License" would likely be good 

git itself is GPLv2  licensed. But I can't find anything about being 
allowed to say "Git integrated" or some such thing. What is really of 
concern to me is: "Is a git hook part of git itself?" If so, then the GPL 
would require that you distribute the source. But if a git hook is more 
like an independent program which uses git, then you wouldn't need to 
distribute source. This is definitely above my pay grade. IANAL nor do I 
play one on TV.
