Thanks for the heads up, I'll check the thread in ubuntu-users out.
Still I suppose it depends on the definition of "KDE" and "GNOME". I do not 
believe that Sebastian is the only person workin on GNOME/GTK desktop 
applications, icons, themes and so on  inside Canonical.
If he is he's been doing a GREAT joib delivering all of the new items found 
here and making so much documentation for all of it as is available on the 
ubuntu websites;

Seemingly Jonathan is the only one who gets paid for any kind of QT/KDE 
desktop environment / application work.
