Hi Stefan,

Sorry for not replaying earlier.

The problem is this, icon designers use SparkleShare with github and they usually leave scratch 
files and uncompleted work there because SparkleShare functions like Dropbox, and the other problem 
we'll have to give newcomers push access to fdo as soon as they ask to join.

If we want to move Sifr to fdo, we've to make an easy way for newcomers to get push access to Sifr 
folder (only) and we've to make sure they can use SparkleShare or similar with fdo.

Hi all,

it seems like we need to discuss the direction of Sifr a little. Specifically,
there seem to discrepancies in the amount of icons between the Sifr
folder in LibreOffice's core repo and the one in Sifr's own repo on

How can we best make sure that _all_ source SVGs (and all
exported PNGs) are available from the same source?

(Some developers have lamented the fact that Sifr was started outside of Since Sifr is now part of LibreOffice proper we should probably
reconsider if we still need the special repo and why[1].)


[1] The original reason was (iirc) for it to be easier to involve people
  scared of fdo but who already had Github accounts -- I think we did not
  completely fail on this aspect.
  The other original reason was that we did not like to push the theme in too
  quickly and have some time to prepare it ... well, that reason is now gone.
