I do not consider lubuntu-artwork to be independent from Lubuntu. When
I install Lubuntu, I want to receive updates to lubuntu-artwork (and by
default and automatically). Lubuntu ships with lubuntu-artwork by
default, so why shouldn't I receive updates for lubuntu-artwork by
default? Why do I have to search and add a PPA?

That does not answer my question. Why do I have to add this PPA to a
Lubuntu installation? Why isn't it added by default or why isn't
lubuntu-artwork receiving updates by default (without having to add
this PPA)?

We're not talking about a third party GTK+ / icon theme here. We're
talking about the Box icon theme / Box GTK+ theme, the official theme
of an offical Ubuntu spin. I consider this to be quite a difference.

By the way:

I also do not understand why I have to search for and have to add a PPA
to receive those updates:


Why can't this just be added to Lubuntu by default?

If you ask me, you really should release a new ISO with those things
being added / updating by default ASAP.

Just saying...
