Sorry, I don't follow #tango. The most appropriate forum to discuss a spec
which is hosted on www.freedesktop.org and claims to be an extension of
the icon theme spec is still xdg-list, in my opinion.
And adding animations to icon themes certainly goes beyond simply
agreeing on a set of names for icons, so I definitively think it should be
discussed on xdg-list, a discussion between dobey, jimmac and tuomas
on #tango does not cut it. You can consider this to be forced feedback,
if you want.
