Re: [opensuse-gnome] Any interest in a green Adwaita theme?

I've been discussing this with Richard while improving the theme. It's
now using the same "selected background color" as the new light KDE
theme - at least I think it is. ^^

We've got a GitHub repo now, if anyone wants to follow/clone/contribute:
https://github.com/Catanzaro/adwaita-suse

Progress: "The GTK2 theme is ready. The light GTK3 theme currently has
several blue elements, mostly buttons. The dark GTK3 theme is still all
blue."

I'll provide another update here when it's ready. Glad people are
interested in this!

One important thing to be aware of when customizing themes and

GTK and gnome-shell are fast moving targets and the theme capabilities
are under constant flux / being extended.

Creating a modified theme and proposing this for inclusion as the
standard must not be considered a one-shot action, but rather a long
term commitment to maintaining it. Changing for one release to some
'green' just to switch back the release after to blue, due to 'no
maintenance resources' is a clear no-go for me and I'm sure we all
agree: this would harm the polish of our implementation much more than
staying with the upstream blue (granted, though, giving up on
'identity' in this case...)

Well we're making the theme for GTK 3.4, so people running 12.2 can
install it manually, and then we'll update it for GTK 3.6
(Factory/12.3). That'll give me a chance to see how much work keeping
the theme updated will be. I know things change a lot, but hopefully the
simplicity of our changes will make it relatively easy to maintain.
