Hmm, I am maintaining the freedesktop sound theme right now, which is
based on gnome-audio, too. I see no reason to maintain two themes in
parallel here.

I'd be very happy to hand over maintainership of s-t-f to you, or can
I convince you to merge the two projects and or rename g-s-t to s-t-f?
That would make it easier for the KDE people to kike it.

My s-t-f is not maitnained in any VC right now (there has been only a
single release for now).

s-t-f has more:  37.

For s-t-f i made sure only to include CC, GPL and LGPL licensed
files. (see the readme). Some of the sounds that come from gnome-audio
are CC-SA 2.0 however, which is not good enough for Debian. Which
makes them good canidates to be replaced.
