Thanks for bringing this up, some quick thoughts (mostly to prevent
people doing duplicate work):

Please don't start working on this one, it'll be a waste of time: the
current plymouth theme is temporary, it needs to be updated with the new
logo & the new ubuntu font. Pasi (knome) & I are on it, get in touch
with knome (on #shimmer, #xubuntu or #xubuntu-devel) if you want to

Bug number?
I can't reproduce it here, so if someone who is affected can file a bug
report against xubuntu-artwork with the following info, that would be
* dpkg -l xubuntu-gdm-theme
* dpkg-divert --list
* ls -al /var/lib/gdm/.gconf* (as root, otherwise you'll have a
  permission denied error)
* and the content of /var/lib/gdm/.gconf.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml (as
  root too, same reason)

knome is also working on it.

For all the other stuff, I'm not sure anyone is working on it (maybe
knome on the banner?), so feel free to pick one.
