Re: Unfavorable Distro-Watch Report

The problem with a review is you don't know who will read it. Perhaps potential new Fedora user who will now look for something better. Worst, some may decide FC7 is not worth testing.

The problem is, today in the internet age with blogs and forums anyone can review anything and say whatever he want. And this is good.

Based on the above comment, I am assuming you are the owner of this effort. I did not know that. I quickly searched the wiki and the only *echo* page which displayed your name was *EchoProblem*. If you are not the owner, who is?

Luya is an important contributor to the theme, many icons list him as the author: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/EchoDevelopment

The "owner" probably is Diana, who started it and did the largest part of the existing icons and David who will package the theme.

As I stated before, creating an icon theme IMO is a huge effort. Information should be flowing on a very regular bases communicating (listserv, forum, irc) it's status and direction. The owner is the advocate of the effort and assumes this responsibility.

Yup, here is a lot of work to do: some dealing with people, some marketing

In conclusion, my concern is the number of missing icons I see on the *echo* wiki page. If the artwork is missing or substituted, a bugzillia report will not be of much help.

The icons listed on the wiki page are the icons for the base GNOME desktop (stock icons), they cover only a part of the entire desktop. There are a lot of GTK/GNOME applications using their own icons and there are the big applications (Firefox, OpenOffice.org)

However, if *echo* is ready and others agree then let's proceed on.

Any theme would be used, even Tango, it will not have 100% coverage, so we have to start with something less.
