Details

Xfce, KDE, Slim packages already have Arch-style artwork. So why not Gnome too?

Here are themes from gnome-looks.org:

GDM greeter themes:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=43302 - nicem have similar Gnome splash
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=29687 - nice
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=47575 - nice
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=13427 (I don't like it)
Notes:
1) first two have wombat logo, so they need to be edited
2) third is nice but the Arch logo should be added, IMO.

Either one of these themes can be adopted or there can be contest made (like that for Xfce artwork recently).

Gnome splash themes:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=47966 - this is similar to the first GDM theme listed
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=38029 - looks very "quickly hand-made" IMHO
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=29688 - too dark
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=28891 - too much everything

So far, choice is not big, especially with splash. Some contest would be nice. ;)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  We keep gnome vanilla where possible. There's a new splash for every gnome release, I don't want to edit a new gnome splash on every gnome release.
