Indeed.  Great job, Stephanie!

If your primary concern is making it easy for others to modify the image
and include it in other media, you and Stephanie should consider
donating it to the public domain.

Otherwise, I suggest you and Stephanie make a short list of what copy
rights she and PLUG want to keep.  Publish that list and a list of
licenses that meet its critera on the logo page.  By defining your base
critera now, you can easily evaluate new media licenses in the same way
Debian's Free Software Guidelines let it evaluate new software licenses.

If Stephanie and PLUG just want to keep the copy right of attribution,
the image can be used with almost any free software and free
documentation license.
