In LO 4.1 and 4.2 (2013/2014) we updated the gradient presents that came from OOo and it would be good to update them now.
Let's get feedback from the UX fellows. Any particular gradient that someone has made his/her own?

No review until now, so the chance to get this into 6.0 declines.

Please review them. Most gradients use the LibreOffice standard color plate.
row 1 and 2
are for drawing shapes. I used quadratic style to show that there is more than linear available in addition it focus more the content if you add text to the shape
1st is good for light accent. Gradient is also good for impress background
2nd like row 1 and 2 quadratic gradient with gray
3rd linear gradient a bit darker. Text work in white and black
1st cool color give a professional and soothing touch
2nd a mix between fresh and vintage
3rd worm color for your lovely content
1st look earthy and clean work as background
2nd work as background and give good focus
3rd focus to the text content with the radial grade
all work quite good as impress background and as shape
1st fresh and clear work good with elipsoid style
3rd a bit vintage
1st use quadratic and Border + Centric property which show what's possible with LO
2nd work good at presentations
3rd let the sun shine
all are clean and professional
would be also nice to have templates (impress) using the gradients
Gradients are submitted in https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/46428/7 but not confirmed yet, unfortunately. I kept the number at 15 as our preset lists that many and tried to show the potential of the configuration rather than providing color variants. Not easy was the naming which is missing in your proposal.

Proposal for updated gradients, pending new colors
Place the palette at ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config/standard.sog
New gradients need an update of unit tests in uitest/impress_tests/backgrounds.py and uitest/impress_tests/backgrounds.py. Color names have to be added to include/svx/strings.hrc, svx/inc/strings.hxx, and svx/source/unodraw/unoprov.cxx in order for l10n.
See https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/46428/ and https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/47088/ for the needed changes.
Mahagoni and Purple Haze is cool. The others I'm sceptic.
when the user want to draw shapes it's difficult to find good gradients for it. and for background gradients I like the ideas of this blog post https://www.slideteam.net/blog/5-awesome-gradient-backgrounds-for-your-slides-and-how-to-create-them/
