Excellent point, Nicu. The schedule for FC7 (or whichever it will be 
called ;-) ) isn't set yet [1] but we can be pretty certain it will be a 
spring release. FC6 went out late October - if we add 6 months we get 
late April. I think we should allow at *least* a month for round 3 
(finalizing all the artwork for the various theme pieces).

I'm going to set Monday, February 12 as the due date for all theme 
rendering / artwork improvements for round 2. That give us a little over 
2 months, to account for the holidays, to get round 2 done. It also 
gives us at least 1 month to break the theme out into the various pieces 
(login, anaconda, grub, etc.) we need and to get it into a test release 
and gives us some time to apply fixes/modifications before final release.

I'll add the due date to the FC 7 Theme page.
