Do you currently understand how GTK theming works?

You suggested multiple themes. Which strikes me as a comment made by
someone unfamiliar with the development side of things. (and i said i
understood) Which, as art lead, would be a big plus. But not necessarily
a requirement. Willingness to learn would be the requirement.

Now I can understand how my questions or POV can come across as curt,
but that is not intended. My questions, as former lead on the project,
are what they are because the right person needs to be found for this
position. Someone with artistic as well as technical ability.
Communication skills as well. An understanding of how GTK theming works
is a must.

Again, please remember to CC me or the -devel list on replies.
