We are doing more work on KDE icon names and it has become very apparent
to me that KDE has a lot more icon names than the spec. I mean a LOT of
icons. I have a list of 128 KDE Control Module 'desktop' files that use
icons and although there are currently some duplications, this is still
a lot -- actually, there are currently too many duplications.
Being realistic about this, I don't think that we should ask that KDE
icons be incorporated into the actual spec -- there are just too many of
So, I was wondering if FD.o could establish a Wiki page where KDE, and
others, could post their icon names that are not part of the spec so
that others with a similar need could use them. This would not require
any approval or any process, just post them.
I would presume that from time to time some of them might be added to
the spec, but this is not necessary.
