>> is it for pharo?

You lost me there.
You are talking about Glamour.

> We need a project. I proposed to do this in the context of the The Glamorous Toolkit project and to integrate all these concerns, including the UI look and feel.

Yes I thought that this is what you were doing.

I'm talking just about the UITheme. So I was planning to rename the GLMglamour looks which is in pharo and do the refactoring but what I could do is to start from yours so that the one we use gets all your improvements. And you could load yours on the side.

> At the moment, I basically copied some of these from Watery2 (like the management of the close/minimize/maximize) buttons.
