Ok well I posted them a while back, about a month ago. I am working on
creating a small team, and hopefully I can get some things done. i
almost think that we need to wait a bit for Icons - as what I have
been working on looks great with the current icons. Mark wants in 2
years for us to have moved to the point of surpassing OS X - So I
think we can create this theme, change the fonts, the work on icons
for the next release, while making improvements to theme in
preparation for the next LTS.
