Just wanted to say, Calum (and perhaps others listening in) that I
firmly believe that, done right, the UI reviews can be very, very
useful. It is clear that we're not doing it very well, though- perhaps
it needs to be more proactive, and earlier in the cycle?

If we're going with the new Clearlooks, does that need any sort of
UI or a11y review? I know that there have been sweeping changes.
There is a lot more blue.

Looking at what appears to be the default new-Clearlooks: there are
some highly visual changes that perhaps we should reconsider (I feel
that sweeping change from release to a release is a bad thing). I
have not talked to any of the Clearlooks guys yet, but was it
planned to make the theme looks more like it did last release (with
nice gradients) or to keep it the way it is?
There has been a general objection to the new 'glossy' look, and it would be possible to revert it. However, I haven't done so since I thought we were in the UI freeze, and changes to the default theme would probably not be welcome unless they where major usability issues or such like. I would really welcome more input from people on this subject - but please, on the correct list! If you'd like to discuss theme issues, please do so on gnome-themes-list. I would be glad if we had a few usability people on the list too.
