I would also like to come with a request regarding the packaging of the
icons, gtk theme, gdm artwork, usplash etcetera. Can we please package
all these items separately and also upload theme to debian upstream. Then
create a virtual package special for this xubuntu release and have the
necessary other packages as dependencies. This way the artwork can also
be used by other distributions, especially for icons, gkt themes and
usplash this would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jelle de Jong
