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.
If the system -> Administration looks out of place with the rest of the system, does it help to introduce another icon style so the rest of the system looks out of place instead?

A icon set is a mighty beast, bigger than it might appear at first. It have taken about 3 years for the 6-7 core icon developers upstream (with several others occasionally helping out) to where it is now. We're welcoming all interested contributors to help out upstream with open arms. I've had a very good experience with working together on with Fedora developers in GNOME and would love for more collaboration to happen. btw, big thanks to Mike Langlie, who did a great job on the icons for Packagekit!
