Not for Fedora only, but for Fedora mainly ;-)

Ours look more realistic than gnome, but less the oxygen icons. The
perspective choices were done by Diana (based on community input) back
when she started with the icon set (back than Fedora was still using
Bluecurve), changing those would basically mean to start from the
beginning, but I am not exactly opposed to that idea, but I'd rather
started such a project parallel to our current Echo...

Oxygen has a lot more lively/glossy colouring and less contrastive
outlines for many icons than gnome. Echo tries to be somewhere
in-between...

Same on Echo part. You can think of Echo as an alternative icon theme
designed especially for Fedora with both KDE and GNOME in mind.

Andreas, are there any areas we might help you other than designing
icons (and filling bugs for unthemeable application icons, which we've
already started doing with system-config-*)? Although we'd like to
continue creating the Echo styled icons, we'd like to help
gnome-icon-theme artist as well...
