Re: New Icon Set...[echo]...

What Diana put online currently is just a preview of a work-in-progress thing, not an 'icon set release', the Echo icon pack is just something someone threw together to be able to get something of an impression of how they look. The different icon sizes are generated from the same .svg's because the smaller versions haven't been made yet

You really shouldn't hurt your self, and look at work-in-progress work, if you can't judge and value it for what it is ... its like saying when the first brick of a new house is laid, 'thats not a good house, it doesn't have walls!'. Not very constructive criticism :-)

Please if any of this is confusing to you, or makes you sad that things have to actually be 'made' before their 'done', then just wait until an official package is released

When I look at the current "Echo" icon pack, I'd say that all three
subdirectories "22x22", "24x24", "48x48" contain the same set of icons,
albeit at different scales. This invalidates your argument, sorry ..

These smaller icons are 'simplified' versions of their larger brothers
and sisters since in so few pixels its very hard to convey so much
graphical information, and as you pointed out, when you try to convey
so much information in just a few pixels, it just becomes kind of a
paint blob.. hence the column 'Small' at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/BluecurveAndBeyond/Gallery Not
filled in yet, but i presume that this column will be filled-in in time
 with the smaller simplified versions of the icons, which don't turn
into  'paint blobs' in 22x22 pixels.. even perspective might sometimes
be 'flat' in the smaller icons to, as you point out, have max visual
information room in such a small area.
