No code change is involved. It's just replacing one PNG

I guess there's a conflict of interest here, given that I'm:
1) the guy who generally gives documentation team approval, and
2) one of the maintainers of Yelp.
But heck, I trust me. And since I'm the documentation team
leader, I trust my judgment in trusting me. Apply circular
reasoning ad nauseum. ;)
Seriously, the affected screenshots are different from SVN
trunk in much more serious ways than a stylistic change to
an icon (e.g. they lack a search field in the toolbar.)
Like Deadpool, I liked numbered lists:
1) The screenshots need to be retaken anyway.
2) Non-metaphor-changing icon updates don't cause confusion.
3) If they do cause confusion, popular distros using different
default themes are a much more serious problem than a purely
So, the documentation team says OK to itself.
