Hello Kévin, webmaster, Emir,

Then, I'm not sure about the Tentative Design part : why snapshots, then latest snapshots ? I 
think just the
last snapshot, in context, is enough. The "duplicate" part don't seems me useful. Maybe just a 
snapshot of
all currents icons and one in context ?

They are like that. One is a sheet, which is how the current icons look. The other is a screenshot, 
which is how they would look in context/in the program.
I didn't really think about the captions/naming, perhaps you can change it to something more 
meaningful :)

Other question, where did you find the Gnome Symbolic icons for your snapshots ?

All Gnome icons are available here
While I'm trying to reuse everything I can, a lot of them had to be edited or even drawn from

Those icons need the white-ish background to show up
instead of the "transparent looking" background.

So, any new icon needs to have a non-transparent background.

I don't think that would be a good choice, if we do so the icons won't be platform independent nor 
theme independent.
Wouldn't two variants (dark and light) be a better solution to this problem?

I wonder, if the icons could be a little bit darker, at this state they are barely readable.

Good point, I forgot to bring it up.
We need to choose a color for the icons, I suggest choosing either Tango palette or LibreOffice 
[branding] palette:
Tango's dark grays: 2e3436, 555753.
LibO's dark grays: 666666, 333333.

Please note that this decision would most likely affect future colored flat icons. On other hand 
the colors can be changed with one click at any time so we don't have to worry about it for now :)

Or they'll look already better when implemented? Or is it better to discuss this on the wiki?

You can see that for yourself in the wiki page.

Do someone know if there is, somewhere, a list of all the icons we actually
use ? This would help us know what we still have to do, and maybe make a
wiki page with all icons and their current status (not started, started by,
analysis, ready).

If you have the LibreOffice source code you can find all the icons in icon-themes. I am replacing 
them (on my machine) one by one to know what's done and what's not.
A wiki page like that would be a huge effort and it wouldn't be so efficient.
We are currently using SparkleShare (Dropbox-like software) and we're looking for a solution that 
would automatically fetch the icons for discussion. Check this meeting where we discussed the
