I think it would be very good to have a unique Fedora sound theme (Ubuntu has one of its own, one that seems very polished compared to the default Gnome sounds). What would it take to do so?

To put it simply: we don't have yet contributors able and wiling to a new sound theme. The bunch of us here are mostly skilled with graphics. And arguably, working on sounds has a higher barrier to entry: on top of skill and experience you need also some hardware and software, the hardware cost money and the software for sound processing is not very well present in Linux/FOSS.

Also, if there are not plans already for this, I would like to see Firefox and OpenOffice have an Echo icon theme enabled by default (I believe again, Ubuntu has something like that, only not installed by

OpenOffice.org need a very large number of icons, Firefox also need some more icons and only a few people work on Echo, all of them in their spare time. Is a problem of manpower. And we are somewhat split in the opinion *if* Echo is the future for Fedora (for example, there is a number of supporters for a personalized version of Tango, just like Ubuntu do and a small number of supporters of a renewed Bluecurve).

default, AFAIK). Another Firefox/OpenOffice wish, they don't exactly integrate as well with gtk; is there any way to fix that?
