I agree with all of these points. The ones that I would highlight,
especially for our uses is the ability for contributing users being able
to install the chosen theme easily on a *nix environment with the most
popular windowing support such as KDE/Gnome; the theme should be
optimized for print (as much as possible). If needed, a variance of the
chosen theme could be designed in such as way that there be a slight
difference to satisfy requirement from website use (more visual) and the
documentation (visual + print). IMO, best if the theme could be the same
setup for both, but, in the end, there may be different needs from one
group and the other.
I'll start with my thoughts on the topic.
Fell free to provide yours.
Once we finished this collection and basic discussion we should move
the results to a dedicated wiki page for further reference.
But for the direct discussion I prefer the mailing list more:

> 1) how such a UI theme should look like
- It should be clean, balanced and friendly as we refer to LibreOffice
on our branding wiki page:
- It should look familiar to Windows users, so they don't consider the
office suite as "geeky" and specially designed for GNU/Linux users.
- It should look up-to-date to most users, so Windows XP style should
be avoided (as it resembles too many people to an "old-fashioned"
- It should be accessible for visually impaired people (at least for
the most common cases like red-green color blindness).
- It should have enough contrast to print well in greylevels.
> 2) what other conditions should be met
- It should *not* use a standard Windows theme, because there are
legal issues .
- It should be available for most users, because providing screenshots
is a task that might be solved by new contributors on their first
steps into our community (if we provide the necessary background to
take the screenshots in a consistent way).
> 3) which existing UI theme would serve best as standard for
Sigrid already uploaded a variety of themes to this wiki page:
On the de-discuss list she voted for the theme "Clearlooks" because
- it is the standard theme on Gnome
- it has been ported to KDE as "Cleanlooks"
- it is available for Windows XP too, so even Windows users can take
screenshots without the legal restrictions mentioned above.
