[VAC] desktop-base status and TODO
I'll be in Ireland for 2 weeks and couldn't work on desktop-base until I'm
the package is in good shape in svn repository.
Since 5.0.0 upload, the following changes were done:
* Relabel background as “Lenny” in GNOME properties. (Closes: #495613)
* Merge wallpapers and backgrounds directories.
* Remove deprecated splash and wallpapers:
* Add MoreBlue Orbit grub and splash sources.
* Add MoreBlue Orbit widescreen.
* Add Nightly sources.
* Add MoreBlue Orbit Splashy theme. (Closes: #495618)
* Add MoreBlue Orbit USplash theme.
* Add Nightly GNOME and KDM splash. Thanks to Robert Jahene.

- Bug GNOME people for including GDM MoreBlue Orbit theme.
- Ask for a freeze exception request.
See you in 2 weeks.
