[Tango-artists] PackageKit and the icon-naming-spec

I'm developing PackageKit and gnome-packagekit and some people have
noticed that I'm using icons from the icon naming spec that I shouldn't,
e.g. using mail-send-receive when downloading a package. Before I do the
first release, I'm asking you guys for help with the icons to fix this
the proper way. Some icons are needed for the taskbar, some are just
used in the monitoring UI, so I actually do need all these icons...
I've got a list below of what actions I need to do and what I think I
should be using
Installing packages ??
Downloading packages ??
Updating packages ??
Removing packages ??
Performing a query system-search?
Updating system ??
Setting up the transaction emblem-system?
Refreshing cache view-refresh?
System up to date (no updates) ??
Low importance updates available ??
Normal updates available software-update-available
Security updates available software-update-urgent
Add/Remove packages system-installer
System update viewer system-software-update
I think some of this belongs in the icon naming spec as this will apply
to the other package management systems like rhn, pup, pirut, zypp, rcd
and that sort of thing. I'll also need people to design some really good
icons for the ? and ?? entries, which will be rewarded by beers at the
next GUADEC. The license also needs to be GPL2.
