I am currently in the very early stages (like 2 or 3 emails worth) of
working out thematic ideas.

Once there's something to show, I'll CC some folks. (as said in my 1st email)

I would ask them to join our list but the past has shown me that it's
never as useful as hoped and they never want our other email. Most
folks I've asked don't want to be bothered.

The GTK and XFWM/Metacity themes I will be taking care of with the
Shimmer folks without input from others.

The wallpaper, LightDM, Plymouth and images for the website will all
have a consistent message and will come from Izo. Once he and I have
some sort of a direction I'll CC Scott and Jorge.

@Jorge: Honestly, I'm not looking for many opinions as to the thematic
elements that will represent Ubuntu Studio so my plan is to bring you
in once we have some images. I know you'll need particular sizes for
things, as well as come up with ideas after seeing some early images.
Things won't be set in stone but somewhat of a path will be chosen by
Scott and I once Izo has had some time to be creative.
