Thanks everybody for the feedback.

So I will try to see if we can create a new logo for WebKitGTK.

I understand this new logo can have some elements from the original
WebKit logo, but it has to be clearly visually different.
(for example, it would be OK to put the WebKit logo on a side of the GTK
logo cube/box, but it will not be OK to just change the colors of the
original logo)

Best regards.
