I tend to switch my icons and themes to have a glossy look or
else depending on my mood. Both on my desktop as well as within firefox
and thunderbird. Now for icons within GNOME, i can always pick up icons
from gnome-looks or some such site. But the biggest sore point about
something like that is that i need to keep checking every now and then
on the site to see if there is a newer version of the same theme. But in
the case of my browser, when i check for extensions / themes, the update
procedure is rather simple.
Now I do understand that it is not a good option that all the theme
writers be asked to publish rpms and maintain a repository. I am
considering that may be we need a simpler update/publish mechanism which
a theme write would be able to build / publish easily. Atleast if we can
get support from the sites themselves to provide such publishings, it
would be great. So the next time I do an update, I am informed about the
various theme updates and get the latest details without having to do a
lot of running around.
Event if we were to build these themes as rpms, so as to have the least
possible impact to the deployment process, it would be great if
repository information could be provided at some place.
I think in your case the best solution would be to have some theme
packaged in Fedora Extras, this way those will be packaged as rpm and
you will be informed about available updates via puplet.
So you may want to ask on the Extras list if people are interested in
packaging there GNOME themes.
