I think we're not in a hurry here. Due to the fact that (afaik) only
two chapters have written logo/trademark agreements yet and there is
no standard agreement in place, you shouldn't be too afraid of using
the name and the logo for your own purposes. The board approval of the
bylaws implies (at least morally) the right to act under the name
"Wikimedia CH" and use the logo, according to the visual identity
