Re: Requesting UI Freeze break for gnome-panel and gnome-utils

NOTE: I am not on the release team.  My approval does not count
towards the necessary two release team approvals.  But it does
count towards any release team approval which is contingent on
documentation team approval.

Clearly, something has to be done.  I suppose our options are:

1) Just make the icon change
2) Put the old icons back somewhere

For the curious, here's the old and new icons:

Let's just suck it up and make the change.

Old and new again:

This change is less critical.  The documentation hasn't been updated in
17 months.  We wouldn't be wasting any new effort, although we would be
further invalidating whatever documentation exists.

The icon does appear in each of the figures, but always in a screenshot
of the already-running application, either in the titlebar or next to the
applet.  I tend to worry more about icon changes where the user is being
directed to look for something, and that something isn't there.  Given:

1) The potential for user confusion is probably very low, and
2) It's not all that likely the documentation would have stood a better
   chance of being updated had the change been made earlier

I say we make the change.
