Hi Mo,

many of the blurry icons are from bluecurve (especially those in
'System' menus) which has only 20x20 and 24x24 sets. I think these could
be fixed easily by creating 22x22 set out of 20x20 by adding a 1px
transparent border.

Dunno, however, how to take care of the applications' upstream icons,
whether create a 22x22 icons with same look as the original or whether
make their gnome/mist variants and contribute them to gnome icon
theme...

Also, as we target Echo icon set on Fedora 9 we should also consider
these and decide which applications' icons create in addition to those
in icon naming specs. Should we rather focus on apps in Live CD, or
rather take care of categories (like icon for graphics-raster,
graphics-vector, graphics-viewer, office-wordprocessor,...)?

Any thoughts on these?
