Congratulations to the winning theme. Can we discuss if there should be
changes to it before the release?

For example, Piotr wrote:
"Personally, I will probably vote for pmahomme, but on some conditions:
reducing headers and some margins, making warnings and success message
to be less intensive."

- header sizes (h2) would look better with 1.2-1.4 em and bold ->
would take less space while making them stand out enough
- reduce paddings a bit in various places (page tabs, tables) to make
it more compact. Currently it may look good on large screens (1200 in
height and higher), but on my 1600x900 I would like to see more data
on screen: in default theme I can display 35 data rows, in pmahomme
only 17 fit on the screen".

I also find that the theme would benefit by being more compact vertically.

Mike Hommé, what do you think about these suggestions?

About the plan, I have no objection for the steps you describe.
