"Better Face Images" is one of the features. Diana worked on that before

somehow her work, do a better selection from the collected images or

We used to ship those images in a gdm-extra-faces subpackage.
I need to investigate what happened to that...
There are also two related features, "Wallpaper" and "Backgrounds
channel", for which I think the best way forward is to link them
together, why struggle with an sub-optimal selection process (which, any
way you make, will get some un-pleased) when we can offer everything
with one click using RSS feeds.
I don't like the part about randomly assigning an initial background,
one think I learned from GNOME is that good defaults matter.
The basic premise here is that we think it may be better to treat
backgrounds as a 'personalization feature', not as a branding vehicle.
Since, after all, changing the background is one of the first things
many people do on a new device.
To make randomly assigning work, it is of course important that we have
a small set of equal-quality backgrounds to choose from (basically, each
of them needs to be a good default...)
For the "Better Fonts" feature, it may not be what you
we at the Art Team are actively asking for "artsy" fonts, things like
Rufscript or Beteckna. We don't want those in the default install, but
is handy to have them easy available.
Expanding the supply of available fonts is certainly great, artsy or
