That was the first place I checked as well and nothing...

How odd.

I hope this isn't a permanent decision.  It almost defeats the purpose
of "Edgy".

I for one liked the artwork.  I *love(d)* the background in GDM.  In
fact I made it my desktop background as well.  I liked the default Edgy
desktop background but I liked the GDM a bit more.

I've been in Kubuntu for the past day, but I've run several
dist-upgrades since then. So I guess my beloved artwork is gone. :-(

I figured it was safe this late in the process.

I guess I'll pay better attention now. :-)

Fortunately for me I did think to backup my ubuntu-sounds a while back.
As 4/5 of the length of the (very cool)  startup and shutdown sounds
seem to be history.

Development Distributions = Adventure! :-)
