And I was busy with some personal projects involving clipart and 
tutorials, but the thing is the process should not be blocked by a 
temporary lack of availability from you, me or some other person.
Some of the people with proposals in Round 1 have blogs and their blogs 
are aggregated to planet Fedora, nobody posted updates there and on the 
list, AFAIK, only Mola and that was one single time. Like they abandoned 
the work after Round 1.

And this may be a problem. You personally "saved" Infinity in its last 
week, if we need to save "Waves" in the last week too, maybe we should 
rethink the schedule or the process for F10.

We can alternate: F8 was light, F9 will be darker...
Maybe make the grey to have a hue of blue, a blue-grey.
