I think it's OK if it happens once in a while; often you just don't 
think about it when you're discussing and sometimes the topic appears to 
be not important enough.

But it's not the first time I notice that there's been quite some talk 
behind the themes. I feel it happens a lot (e.g. you never see 
discussions when it comes to upgrading the integrated scintilla copy, 
but yet it happens), and that makes me feel the development process is 
not open enough to the community. But that's a vital thing and Geany (in 
fact, all FOSS projects do) benefits from involving the community as 
much as possible.

OTOH the geany mailing lists have increasing traffic recently (which is 
definitely a good thing, even though I'm having trouble to follow 
sometimes) so I guess it's getting better.

Best regards.
