Has anybody proposed that? (I haven't. And I don't see anybody else doing so.)

So, I'm confused...?


This was in response to when you said "this effort is pretty much
orthogonal to discussion of Fedora's default icon set". I'm just
questioning expending time and effort on Bluecurve if it's not going to
be the default?

*IF* we decided to go with Tango as the default (which I'm pretty sure is not the case):

I don't think it can hurt to document Bluecurve and add some more icons where people want/need them. It's a nice set of GPL artwork that would be useful for a lot of things besdies Fedora, and it is what we've got now. I believe this is time & effort well-spent I think for the benefit of the greater FOSS community and beyond.

I do not believe Fedora should maintain multiple icon sets by default in the distribution. There should be a single default. However, I don't understand how that prevents people associated with the Fedora art project from working on alternative icon sets if they so desire (and it seems as if the interest is there.)

As far as the icons I've created - I work on the RHN product team. RHN uses Bluecurve, and I still create new icons to fit the set where RHN needs them. So at least my efforts in creating Bluecurve icons aren't wasted in my eyes.

I guess this is similar to the question
"Should Fedora Core continue including KDE along GNOME?" in a way and I
know what many sane people would answer here.

'Sane' to you is not sane to everybody... so I really am not sure what you're trying to say between the lines; I can see arguments for either side.


I'm just saying it doesn't make sense to put effort into trying to
support two competing things just so the user can have a preference. But
that's just my view of things.

Sure, I share your view personally, but there are plenty of people that don't.
