Maybe for starters offer input on the current Dark Theme and if there might
be interest in a new light & grey theme as well or any other suggestions for
that matter. You can find the themes here:

Alternate Light Theme (Lighter, more color contrast on some items/widgets)
Both the light themes seem quite dark and not very contrasty
(with black text and icons) compared to the GIMP I currently see,
which has a background color of #dcdad5 rather than the #bdbdbd
used in both of the light themes for most icons and menus;
except the menus in the alternate light theme, which are pretty
close to what I see now in GIMP.
I'd like to see a theme option (whether or not it's the default)
that has similar contrast to the current theme; the new themes will
be harder to read for at least some users.
Or am I only seeing #dcdad5 because I changed my theme at some
point? I'm pretty sure I don't have a custom GIMP theme (themerc
says: include "/usr/local/gimp-git/share/gimp/2.0/themes/Default/gtkrc");
my .gtkrc-2.0 says gtk-theme-name="Raleigh", and I don't think I
set that explicitly, I think it was the default at some point.
Will these new GIMP themes override the user's GTK theme?
I'm using Linux with Openbox, no desktop.
Which version of Gimp are you using? The themes are for 2.9.x/2.10.x.
You shouldn't be seeing those colors, I only get something like that if
i override it with a local .gtkrc-2.0 file for the user i log in with.
But since you mentioned that, your locally defined theme probably
overrides some or all of the Gimp's chosen theme color values. So short
answer seems to be no from what i tested here. Take a look at the
screenshots from the bug reports to see what you should be getting (i
updated them this morning).
