Firstly, I disagree that no consensus was reached regarding action over the 
wallpapers. I think if you ask people, there is a pretty strong opinion about 
some action needing to take place.

Only the absolutely worst examples of wallpapers were completely removed, with 
some moving out of kdebase/ and into kdeartwork/ Ditto with the tiles.

Please keep in mind that any change of this type is going be slightly 
controvertial and not liked by all. However, if we needed 100% agreement on 
decisions for KDE, we would not get *any* work done.

Some high-rated wallpapers from kde-look will now enter to bring some quality 
to our default offering for 3.5
