[Design-team] Advice Request - GTK+ theming

 On a totally personal level, I've decided to hack Equinox Radiance
Glass GTK2+ theme to look a bit more like Fedora (basically make it look
like Clearlooks/Fedora).

 Equinox Radiance: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Equinox

 It appears that this is a Featured Theme in Ubuntu 10.4. I also know
it's a bad wave to transport such thing into the Fedora Realm, specially
from me since I'm not that Ubuntish...

 I was just wondering if there is any documentation regarding theming on
Fedora. Though this is like a hobby thing more to do on my free time,
anyone could point some useful docs regarding to GTK+ theming using
Fedora brand colors?

 Things like the colors for gnome-panel, buttons, windows frames etc
could be useful.

 As a last resort I'll hack Clearlooks/Fedora to get some values and
some guidance, but I was hoping also to bring something new into this.

 Currently Equinox isn't packaged for Fedora as far as I know, so I'll
also package it once I get the theme done. This is not exactly something
to be a part of Fedora distribution (as from my point of view, it's too
much Ubuntish), but it's my favourite theme, and I'll make it available
on my Fedora People Resources.

 Thanks all in advance,
