   I walked in this evening and looked at IRC, only to see a commit go 
by to change the background image of the LiveDVD from the Barcelona 
image to "background_dark.jpg" in desktop-conf

   It is consistent with neither a principle of less noise on commits eg 
fewer is better, as needed
nor with basic principles of good design. That "background_dark.jpg" is 
not professional quality design. Its muddy, gray robs the other colors, 
hardly readable and busy.. its just a shambles..

   So I quickly reversed the change, and was greeted with some SVN 
sleight of hand to impose this ill-considered change on the tree

   This is not a good commit, and now, is bad community process to boot
Please clarify this for all Hamish
