http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-redhat-list/ would be the 
right venue for this.

You need to set the three GConf keys (use gconftool-2 with the
appropriate settings, don't edit files by hand .. see the gnome-sysadmin
guide)

 /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme
 /desktop/gnome/interface/icon_theme
 /apps/metacity/general/theme
