[Gimp-developer] Proposal: rename Symbolic icon themes to Symbolic-Light and Symbolic-Dark


in the development branch, we got two Symbolic icon themes, Symbolic and

This hints at their relationship, as one is the inverted version of the
other. For those who know how the build works, it also tells which one
is generated from the other (by means of a gegl:invert-gamma op).

We also got five ui themes of different lightness and darkness, and the
user is supposed to use a combination of them suited to their own
preference and needs. I dare say many may consider light icons on darker
backgrounds or dark icons on lighter backgrounds a suitable UI design.

It is not immediately obvious to the user which icon theme is the dark
one and which is the light one, by theme name alone. There are icons in
the preferences, but there might not always be the advantage of using
them, for example when providing text-only support to a "your icons are
invisible!1!!"-type support request.

Therefore, I suggest to rename the icons themes to Symbolic-Light and
Symbolic-Dark, respectively, and keep them as such for the 2.10 release.

Other names to make the difference and the icons' appearance obvious are
possible as well, of course.
