Hi everyone,
If we are to make an icon set, I would prefer it to be designed from
scratch. I don't think we can achieve good quality by transforming the
Tango icon set or the High Contrast Galaxy set (frankly, it's much harder
for me to decipher the icons from the HC than the standard icon set).

I was thinking we could begin with a simple icon set for Android. We'd
probably need to make this set anyway, as LibO would look really
out-of-place on Android if it shipped with Tango icons. And the initial
plans for the Android port are to make a high-fidelity document viewer, so
we won't have to make many icons initially. As the Android port develops,
the icon set would grow, and when it grew big enough, it would be suitable
for the desktop version.

As for active vs. disabled icons, Android has
this: 30% opacity for disabled icons, light or dark.

To truly achieve good quality, though, we need someone experienced to
coordinate the project. Nobody's raised their hand so far -- perhaps we
should ask some prominent open-source icon designers ourselves or raise
money on KickStarter if nobody was willing to help with this for free.

P.S. Also take a look at Adobe Buzzword's icons:
