Galaxia is a set of artwork created for the upcoming gNewSense 3, codename Parkes.[1] gNewSense GNU/Linux is a GNU distribution based on Debian, but compliant with the FSF guidelines for Free Software distributions.

Galaxia's main purpose is to provide a graphical theme that gives gNewSense a more consistent appearance.[2] Galaxia includes:

  • A logo design.
  • GNOME desktop themes and backgrounds.
  • Installer and GRUB splashes.
  • GDM3 theme.
  • A Moin Moin Web site theme.
  • Promotional art work.

Most source files are not software, but they are mostly XML, SVG and other plain text files appropriate for version control.[3]

Currently, the project is hosted at Bitbucket.org. But I want to migrate to a hosting service which provides mercurial and libre front-ends and back-ends.
