I've been keeping up with "Artwork Drop" schedule so that we could
test things out before the dead line. So new themes have made it to
Karmic, though we still have time to make changes.

At the first drop I added Turrican, Hanso, and update Impression to
Build 90627-1

At the second drop I added Night Impression and updated Hanso.

Hanso uses Breathe so it is now a dependency of the community-themes
package. In the past we had discussed that included themes should use
Human for their icons, but as Breathe is a community project it seemed

rather use Breathe rather than Human, let me know so I can make the

Any feedback on these changes is appreciated. I don't want to be
making unilateral decisions, but as I received very little feedback I
pushed ahead. Are there any themes I overlooked? Anything included
that shouldn't have been? Found any bugs? I had floated the idea of
dropping Kin, but I got no response at all on that. So I've left it in
