Thanks for all your hard work :)

I tried the GDM theme here on Intrepid but it didn't work (it just displayed
a default theme), but that might be because it's Intrepid...

Anyway, I had some concerns regarding shipping stuff after the release. Does
that mean that people's themes will be changed with a normal system update?
I can very well imagine people not appreciating this. Also, perhaps it would
be better to ship it with Karmic anyway so we then have a really polished
updated desktop and generate some buzz with that ;-)
