>From the user's point of view, this is good news. It's a simple fact that computer geeks are rarely competent when it comes to graphics design and artwork. The horrible look of "community" distros like "Debian" is the living proof for this observation whereas "OpenSUSE" or "Fedora" are an order of magnitude ahead [ok, your designs are not that bad but still fairly amateurish].
Some polish by a graphics professional was really needed, and I am glad to hear that Diana whose work has always been extremely well done is going to give a final touch to the artwork for "F7".
Since it will be apparently based on your "Flying high" theme you should be rather pleased about this development, shouldn't you? An overhaul of your submissions should not be considered personally offending.
Personally, I would have gone for "Borealis" but somehow a decision had to be made ..
And regarding the "Echo" icon theme, I do not see any interference with the  the remaining artwork. They are rather independent from each other.
