Re: Icon theme changes

The reason for this change is to make things more simple and reliable.
With our current use, symbolic icons are simply not an optional add-on
anymore, but an integral part of the user experience. By making it
part of the single icon theme, we avoid a whole class of 'broken UX'
cases that happen when somebody forgets to install or removes the
symbolic icons.


Some people (like myself...) were not happy with the deprecation of stock icons last year. At that time it was stated that one can at least depend on certain common icon(names) 'gtk-XXX' to be present and useful. Does this merger imply a similar position with respect to the -symbolic versions?

If I am distributing a gtk application (for use not just withing GNOME) which icons can I assume present?
