Seems too little time for Fedora 7 to adopt Echo.

Let's do our best to complete some of them. Less talk, more action.
Afterall, Tango got included by default on GNOME even though the entire set was
not finished. Let's focus on essential icons.

* I have almost completed the set of weather icons, uploading will be done soon

Yes, it does seem like a daunting task and with Matthias's numbers it might seem even more overwhelming. However, these numbers answer such questions as: what is the current Echo status, which icons are needed for a "complete" set, and what needs to be worked on. From the numbers it is clear that Echo's inclusion in the FC7's development cycle is for encouragement and feedback...that a final decision have not been made. What is a complete set...or complete enough set...to be included? There are three major types of icon work to be done: 1) creating the obvious missing icons from the list (Many of the bits already exist in creating missing icons.) 2) creating the missing size variations of existing icons (Requires time in resizing and possibly simplifying the existing icons to look its best in smaller sizes). 3) fine-tuning (fixing) existing icons from bug reports. By focusing on these types of work, the numbers of missing icons will start to decrease and a reasonable set could possibly emerge in time for FC7. These should be the current focus instead of 22x22 versions or KDE forks. As the set becomes more complete, specific sizes and versions could be created.

Luya and Ben have been continuing Echo icon work and I will joining their efforts by resuming icon creation starting next week. My personal plan is to start with modifications to the Mail Icons [1] and arrow icons. Then based on Matthias's list, I will start to fill in the missing pieces.

In the meantime, I've posted an Echo Guide on the wiki [2] for any that might be interested. I do plan to provide examples under the "Echo Icons in Grids" section at a later date.
