Hi all.

>>> - gdm

>> GDM is no longer themable like in the past. I can place a logo on top

>> makes use of the default wallpaper so this is not really necessary.

> that hard, we somehow need to remove anything Red Hat which is in there,
> even after the machines booted first.

>>> - kdm
>>
>> KDM is not that hard, KSplash makes use of the ksplashx engine. Going
>> to dig into that.

> Thanks.
>
>>> - bootup (now rhgb, then plymouth)
>>
>> RHEL ships a cool circle theme which we could just use. It's GPL'ed so
>> we only need to replace the logos

> I could live with that, others?
>
>>> - anaconda graphics
>>
>> Anaconda artwork changed a bit. It now has a top bar. This might be
>> the hardest part.
>>
>>> - install slides (no idea if those are still supported *or* needed)
>>
>> no, just one static screen
>
> Okay.
>
>> I am going to start packaging that stuff and put it somewhere you can
>> grab the srpms from.
