Hi all,

Hi everyone,
I've received a response from Lapo, who seems to be ok with relicensing the
icons. He also offered to design any icons we need to avoid feeling like a
mishmash icon set.

This is great news. If we have a willing icon designer, we can actually start 
to meassure the quality of our existing icons, respecting our international 
users. This way we can step-by-step increase the quality by replacing the 
worst icons and hence ensuring a consistent icon quality over time.

We would need a small team of perhaps 2 or 3 people who are willing to work on 
this topic over a longer period of time to get some real results here. We 
would have to work closely with the localization teams and we would need the 
icon designers willing to support us in this process, of course. I am willing 
to mentor the process and help you to do it efficiently. I can provide the 
needed tools (aGPL) including the hosting of the service.

What do you guys think? Anyone interested?

Hi Marek,
I think every icon here is made by Jakub or myself, so thumbs up for
relicensing this stuff whatever license LibreOffice needs. Also feel
free to ask any custom icon you may need, I'm a LibreOffice user and I
hate mishmash icon sets :-)

Hi Lapo,
Here's the complete list of icons we'd like to use (from Astron):
If some of the icons are not authored by you, could you point us to the
actual author(s)?
Thanks. :)
