Hi Robert et al.

Thanks - great to see you are available to work on the icons. I think the
basic rationale for the icon refactor proposal was to reduce the color
palette and use accent colors to group actions together (e.g. all map
navigation icons get a red accent). It would probably be more useful if you
got together with those interested in changing the icon set completely and
have a chat to understand their motivations and then decide how to move
forward (IIRC that was Mathieu Pellerin, Nyall and Nathan). As Markus
mentions there is some benefit in having OSGEO familiar icons so maybe
their suggestions would be worth doing across the board if they have merit.
