One thing for sure is that depending on the community to finish the
icon set takes way too much time. We need a sub-project leader to
direct and motivate the team.

I'd suggest "Murrine GTK2 Cairo Engine"¹. I have been using
MurrinaGilouche² which is based on this engine. Tweaking an existing
theme is much less time consuming and is deliverable.


It's odd to see the discussion of metacity and gtk2 themes off the
table for FC6. And I think they are the most important elements
because for one thing they are what users see 99% of their time using
computer. As hibernation/suspension works quite well now, most of the
people may see their login screen once a month and grub splash screen
once half a year.
