Hi Pat
I'd really like to collaborate with you on optimizing the icon /artwork.I'm the author of 'pngslim', and have a few custom scripts for icons...
Perhaps we could have a chat on IRC, to see how best to work together?
Beyond lossless optimization of the icons, there are bigger tasks I want to tackle. These include:- Agreeing standard icon theme naming and reducing duplicate icons (see an old audit I started: http://people.bath.ac.uk/ea2aced/OOo/OOoIconCat.odt )- Looking at whole packaging concept, so we only ship one core theme and other themes are available as extensions.- Usage profiling for quicker startup times.- Hacking the code to treat HC as a  separate theme (big wins to be had there!).- List of other tasks here: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AktmVHYOt-kzcmpnbFE0Rmx2c1lLVTVwaUtDR2t3S0E&hl=en_GB
Look forward to working with you and hope we can chat soon.
