Re: Debian squeeze theme: dead in the water?

Hash: SHA1

Hi -release, I'll be aiming any further discussion at -desktop only
after this message.  Thanks!

But first, I do have a release-specific question.

desktop-base contains the current "default" Debian look&feel. It strikes
me that a theme could (or even should) perhaps exist as a package in
order to get exposure before being "blessed" as a default theme.
Therefore, for the three themes that are being considered (and presently
are not in the archive in any form),  I think it would be most ideal if
they were independently packaged, uploaded, and then, should one be
chosen as the default L&F, desktop-base adjusted to Depends: on it.
Future workflow might have a theme in the archive
earlier in the cycle.

But that means 3 NEW package uploads and a request for unblock on the
blessed one at least (and that looks like Ciel).  Would that be frowned

Thanks for the clarification.

I did before posting, and saw no activity for four months.  I'm glad to
see I've kicked the hornets nest :)
