Hi Alex,

Hi Mirek,

I and Jay agreed that the icons look mu ch clearer without the candy-ish
fill, especially the "T" and the omega. Currently, the icons bold, italic
and underlined in master use the Gnome 2.20 style, with a rather flat
gradient and highlights. Here's a SVG comparing the different versions:

I didn't attend the last two hangouts, so we didn't make a decision
regarding the text icon style, but I could attend next week.

Regarding the icon size, is it really that bad if a few icons make use of
the 1 px margin? E.g. the text lines in the bullets and numbering icons
look too slim if one leaves the margin untouched.

Since we want to get rid of tango-testing and remove it after rescuing all
icons good enough for tango, I don't think it's a good idea to add another
theme. Many Gnome apps now use the -symbolic set, so the inconsistency
won't be that apparent.

The thing is, these changes, for better or worse, make this a different
theme with different rules. Rather than make half the icons flat with an
outline (as the new text icons are) and keep half the icons
Gnome/Tango-styled, I'd much rather if you could put together a coherent
set of new rules for the new icons, so that the new set is consistent.

As for keeping the Gnome-compatible set -- I'd like to keep it because it's
gotten pretty far, it was worked on a lot, it fits in better on desktops
that use the colorful Gnome icons (keep in mind some icon sets inherit from
it, like elementary), and it's more fit for reuse in apps that make use of
these Gnome icons. I get that maintaining it is not really an option right
now, so I'm thinking I'll create another repo with sources abandoned icon
sets, adding the sources from the LibreOffice repository as well.
