Well, thanks for notifying. A lot of people here were waiting for a vote. Just read this list.
I know it's kind of a developer thing to want things get done and I respect that.
But the people here (including me) are mostly non-developers, they were doing their artwork and some put a lot of time into it. I would have expected that this work would be judged in a fair manner, with a discussion and pros and cons and finally a vote. And not to be notified in a hurry by somebody who just was tired of waiting.
Yes, I would like to do that.
I suggest to vote on this list.
I suggest a timeframe of five days. So voting ends Tuesday, 26th of June, midnight.
I suggest that everybody who is interested how Debian 7 will look like, can participate in that vote. So that means the poll is open for users.
I suggest everybody has one vote and writes the name of the favored proposal into the subject line of his mail.
I suggest to make this poll immediately known to all user-communities and blogs.
This is not so much work. I have helped the last time to do it. I am volunteering to do it now.
We all want a new default. And everybody here tried to help.
If by this every Debian user gets to vote over the picture they will look at the next two years, that's OK with me.
And even if we are voting for "Joy" (which would be a reasonable choice BTW) it would be a vote by the community and not by one single person.
