Currently we are using matcha-sea to match the other official editions. However, the shell theme is adwaita-maia, inherited from the gdm theme. I think that because we are a rolling release distro, we should stay closer to the upstream and use adwaita-maia. It looks more native and gnome apps are designed with adwaita in mind. There is even corresponding Firefox theme that makes Firefox feel like a native gnome app. Adwaita-maia is so simple that we can maintain it in house, and there is no fear of the theme breaking.
+ I can maintain it, no need to worry about theme being discontinued
+ Closer to upstream, minimally prone to breakage
+ More consistent look inside the desktop
+ No weird mixing of white and dark colors
+ Has light variant
+ Look matches the other editions
+ Theme is maintained by another team, so potentially less work for us
Which theme would you prefer?
