First off: Congratulations to Adrien, for getting his Artwork picked.

as told on IRC, I feel like Ulrich, disappointed about the fact, that
there was no "fair" vote.

I agree. It's unfortunate and unfair to the artists, who
put a lot of work into the proposals, but I also don't think that
starting a last-minute poll (without a previous discussions) is
a good idea nor possible.

Paul stepped up, to at least do something, so that we have a fresh
looking wheezy. He should not be blamed for how things went, in
fact I think there is nobody to blame.

I am happy with the decision (the Joy theme). It's clean,
professionally done and fits well into Debian. 
I'll be glad to help with the integration (especially into KDM/KDE).

Goodbye Spacefun, welcome Joy ;)
