Hi Bill,

When we approved Echo as the default icon theme for F10, I was under the

I strongly disagree with the decision to use the Echo icon theme.  For
one, there is simply not enough time before Fedora 10 to fix the
problems that you point out.  There is also the fact that the quality
of the artwork is noticeably lower than the upstream GNOME and Tango
icon themes.

See the baseset[1]. Also there are issue on system->Administration that neither gnome nor
tango addressed that were done on Echo theme.
In my opinion, we should:
1. Not use the Echo icons for Fedora 10
2. Encourage Fedora artists to become involved with the upstream GNOME
and Tango artist communities
The aim was to get ready before the preview release version will be out. With the given time, we (particulary Martin and I) work hard despite the lack of manpower and the calling for assistance Fesco asks to fix essential icons
which are currently addressed on fedorahosted.org. Latest snapshot are available on git repostory. Need to remind  Gnome/Tango artists are keeping eyes on on Echo.
