Yes, of course. I simply wanted to express how impressed I am by the
polish in the Debian desktop. :)

Having taken a look in the XML configuration, it looks like
debian-moreblue provides its own translations. Not being really
knowledgeable about gdm, I'm curios about the reason for this.

At least for the "Options" button, the theme provides only a handful of
translations. Most (if not all) of my other themes simply uses the stock
messages (and translations) from gdm. This also provides the correct
keyboard shortcuts. I have attached a patch (for the theme version in
the gdm package) removing the translations in the theme and using the
ones from gdm.

As for the icons and bold text mentioned before, I have made adjustments
in the theme for this. Here's a screenshot,

Hi! I liked this ! :)
Can you to send me the icons ?


Does this look acceptable?
