Bah, this is only a test release intended to retrieve more bugs as possible. I
have learn to take negative review as a way to improve the distribution.
Contributions now know the weak point too fix.

 I participated to the inclusion of echo-icon-theme on rawhide by default. As
David indicated, it was on October that the decision was made and I put the
announcement for the availability of echo-icon-them on Rawhide. For what I
observe on several forum, users welcome the change of icons. Despite the heavy
schedule (real life sucks sometime), I do my best to work hard to the
development of echo. New icons are available but xml list needs to be updated.
Sources to modify the icons are available : SVG. I am not sure what else is
missing for further push the development. *rant off*

I really wonder if Mairin departure from leadership to the development of GNOME
really impact some people here. Perhaps we need that.
