The CentOS theme looks just like the RHEL theme since there was only a 7
and not any trademark reasons to change that theme.

The goal of CentOS is to change the minimum amount of source code
possible ... so we didn't change it.  We did get the logo working on the
login screen with the latest updates.

If someone *WANTS* to figure out how to change the theme using the
git.centos.org source code, and if they recommend the changes via
patches using the git am format on the CentOS Devel mailing list, we
will certainly discuss those possible changes.

Remember, we have only 3 people doing CentOS Linux distro related things
.. and of the 3, only 1 (me) is full time maintaining of distro
packages.  The other 2 are concentrating on Docker/Container/Cloud.

It isn't like we have a hundred (or even a dozen) engineers working on
