Re: Squeeze Artwork: selection of default theme



Hi,

I think it's most important to provide one nice, new default-themeing, the problem is not the size of the package but the needed freeze exception. More non-default themes means more work, more communication and likely more time. So we should concentrate on the winning proposal (and maybe the second :) )

@Amir: I totaly agree with Ulrich. After googling "meritocracy" I'm sure that this is not the way debian works. On the other hand, we need pracmatic decisions and not all potentially interested people could be asked for every one of these.

Regards,
Rob

Hi Amir,

I really hope you reconsider this and don't leave Debian as an artist, as you are really needed here. As Robert Jaehne pointed out, there aren't too many people who know all the details about making a Debian theme.

And the last word about decisionmaking hasn't been spoken so far. As I see it, it's just two people talking, nothing more.

You have made a great artwork and showed a lot of skills. So let's relax and see what you like to do next.

best regards
Ulrich

Thank you all for your support and time.


Farewell!

Say what? No! It's about the theme, something that should be considered
by
everyone
(that is, if they choose to do so), not about how to compile gcc or
whatnot
-- this is not
a technical decision. I am rather disappointed you have such a stance. :(

I disagree, this is exactly the same thing. People are welcome to
participate in such a choice by making themes, preparing packages,
commenting stuff etc. and the final call should me made by relevant
people working on it, not by “everyone”.

Cheers,
