Hi Martin,

I'm glad to see this icon but at the same time makes me really wonder something.
In the days that you made the current mail icon i said that it looked
"ugly" and so not mail like (maybe not in those words but that was the
result) And i suggested better looking (more realistic) envelope
icons. You where highly against it! Now you made new ones in basically
the style i suggested which kinda stuns me because of your (at that
time) definitive NO. So what did change your mind?

Also something i notice recently.. This icon theme is really going
towards the Oxygen icon theme which make me wonder something else: Why
not stop making those nice icons and use the oxygen icon theme? If
needed adjust that theme to the fedora needs. My guess is that you
will be done a lot faster with this theme if you do it that way.
