Spring/Fall Seasonal Themes for 6-month Releases

As the Fedora release schedule is now about as reliable as the coming of 
spring and fall, it occurred to me that spring and fall might serve as 
appropriate visual themes for alternating releases.

Both "spring" and "fall" (aka autumn) are nice natural visual metaphors 
that have recognizable and (potentially) beautiful color schemes 
associated with them. They are also both "natural" themes, which can 
work well for desktop themes.

Perhaps we could adopt a "spring" visual theme for the odd-numbered 
releases that fall in the spring, and a "fall" visual theme for the 
even-numbered releases that fall in the, well, fall.

This would also provide a way to have a strong visual change between 
releases, but still build on a larger theme that could grow more refined 
over multiple releases.

Just a quick idea - cheers,
Steven Garrity

PS. I know this only holds up for one half of the planet - but our 
Southern-Hemispherian-friends can pretend we're being ironic about the 
seasons - and, spring and fall are beautiful on screen, no matter what's 
going on outside.
