I don't understand much of GTK Theming, but I'm working for some in a
'Galatic Empire' (reference: star wars) theme with Nodoka ;)

I'll upload it one of this days on fedora-art.org.

As for the personal identity of Fedora, yes, I agree with you, we should
have one. Things like the ones you spoke above about Nodoka being
tackled, are things that make my marketing oriented mind thing in
concepts like 'open marketing' and Fedora as a Community distribution.

Keep up the good work, the 0.8 looks to be awesome from the designs I've
seen the other day on Nodoka @ fedorahosted.
