I guess by "project lead" you refer to the FreedomBox Foundation (not 
Debian).  I do not speak on their behalf, but...

At http://mray.de/fbxfoundation_robert/LICENSE.txt it seems the design 
is already licensed as AGPL-3+, and that FreedomBox Foundation (not you) 
hold copyright for it.

If you have handed over copyright of your design, then it probably makes 
sense that you clarify if your suggestion to them is to _replace_ the 
current AGPL-3+ license or to _extend_ it with CC-BY-SA (the third 
possibility of extending with both renders AGPL useless).

If instead you still hold copyright for the logo design (i.e. if that 
other license statement is bogus or covers only other parts of the web 
design you and Sean did), then you need not ask anyone: Just tell us how 
you as copyright holder wish to license your work.

Hope that helps,

 - Jonas
