It's just one of the leads people are following, starting from Holger
suggestion. Feel free to work on that or to propose something radically
different! That's the whole point of the call for artwork after all :-)

You're right. That's why we're trying to work more on communication
around our need to have great graphic artists help us out with theme-ing
Wheezy, so spread the word!

GNOME 3 is Debian testing since quite a while. That is the default
desktop that we are targeting for Wheezy. Nothing will be carved in
stone at least until the freeze next June, but that GNOME 3 will be
default Wheezy desktop looks, at present, as a safe bet. Not however
that the theme will be used for more than just GNOME, as documented in
the requirement wiki page.

Thanks for your interest,
looking forward to your submission!
