Re: GNOME throbber inconsistencies?

hi Cosimo;

do you have some notes as to what kind of API you and Benjamin were
thinking about? I can probably spare a couple of cycles to work on it
for 3.10, and it would help me getting up to speed.

Thanks. By Cosmio and Benjamin, do you mean Cosimo Cecchi and Benjamin

I do indeed. :) (I was kinda hoping that they'd chime in.)

Hi Marco and Allan,

Indeed the reason they're different is the "line style" the shell spinner -
and former GtkSpinner widget - has is not possible to do with pure CSS
gradients while keeping arbitrary scalability of the widget.
Our long term plan for this would be to have a set of predefined sizes for
the spinner (as we currently do for icons). This would make it possible to
achieve the animation from the theme using actual image assets instead of
layered CSS gradients, which gives us all the flexibility we need to ensure
consistency, but no-one stepped in and actually tried to implement this idea
