I want to create an application that will get new wallpapers from and change the desktop wallpaper with the users permission. Since I am a newbie to Gnome, I want some guidance regarding how I may proceed to create this application. Any help from creators of a similar
application is welcome.

While it would be a good idea to begin with, at some
point in time, the application should have a feature to allow the user
to add URLs to similar repositories of appropriately licensed art. For
example, to begin with, if the application allows the listing of - top
downloaded, thematically similar, size based classifications, it would
be nice to have.

Bryan Clark, Alberto Ruiz and I talked about how the GUI might look for this (well, actually for new backgrounds via RSS feeds) a couple of years ago. I'll see if I can dig out some of the mockups that we kicked around at the time.
