Summary

The GtkIconTheme support is important for artwork changes (like the ones we have seen in dapper). To make this process as painless as possible all our important apps need IconTheme support. Gnome has a similar goal: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/AppIcon

Rationale

With IconTheme support there is no need to upload a package just because some icon changed, there is a central place to change the look.

Use cases

Michael painted beautiful icons for App X, gets them included in an Icon theme, changes his Icon theme preferences and they don't show up.

Scope

Find and patch (and send patches upstream) the packages in main that do not support the GtkIconTheme. This includes (that we know of):

Design

Implementation

Code

Data preservation and migration

Outstanding issues

Finished applications

BoF agenda and discussion
