I think the Design Team's mailing list address is
It might be good to forwards your last email to them. I think they can help
you set-up some space in the LibreOffice wiki for uploading test-files to.
Also they would probably be glad to see new people join so if you or anyone
else wants to join in then please do! :)

you mentioned ; under usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/apps, I find, just
as you mentioned, that
storing libreoffice-calc.svg requires some 1.3 MB.
My question is - what would happen if the LO
apps were simply removed from this folder
; would that influence use of the programme in any
important way ?...
Hi, and thank you for confirming what I saw regarding the scalable apps...
Now, I did not remove those files. Instead, I made smaller svg files, ~
each for base, calc, draw, impress, and writer files and ~ 450 bytes for
the start-center-related files. I gave them the corresponding file names
and replaced the bloated ones with the smaller ones. And, so far, I can
still open LibreOffice just fine. So I still don't know what part those
files play and why they're there.
If you're interested, here's my "replacement" code for the calc svg file
:) Obviously, it doesn't look the same but it gets the point across ;)
<svg width="166" height="205" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
<rect ry="9" rx="9" id="svg_21" height="194" width="156" y="5.5" x="5"
stroke-width="5" stroke="#91E185" fill="#7f7f7f"/>
<path fill="#91E185" stroke-width="5" d="m83,7l76,1l0,68l-76,-69z"
<path stroke="#999" id="svg_24"
<text font-weight="bold" xml:space="preserve" text-anchor="middle"
font-family="Monospace" font-size="134" id="svg_1" y="155" x="83"
To view it as an svg file, paste the code into a text editor, and save the
file with any prefix but the
suffix must be .svg
. You can then view the file with your default image viewer.
