AFAIK, the Debian Desktop people have the clear idea of work
since the beginning of the development cycle to produce a new look
for Lenny and I don't see why they can't integrate g-i in the pack
and also follow Frans idea to keep the installer "red", designers
can achieve that, which means keep the "feeling" and still use
different colors for that. :-)
First, it was never about the colors alone. We've revamped Debian
Desktop and decide to keep with the 'blueish' feel across KDE, GNOME
and Xfce. It was (and still is) common sense between us.
Andre, that made the debian-moreblue theme that is being used into
desktop-base source package also prepared material for g-i, that
wasn't submitted by me to d-i team review because we haven't discussed
our participation on the team and then the general freeze came.
The debian-desktop teams counts with representative members from
pkg-gnome, pkg-kde, pkg-xfce, pkg-galago and tasksel. Is anyone into
d-i, specially working on g-i interested in join us and cooperate for
not only a better artwork, but a better and well integrated and even
easier installer for desktops in our following releases?
thanks in advance,
