Subject old colored vs new monochrome icons
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 16:28:45 GMT
Hi;

Perhaps it's time to retake the famous issue concerning the
unpopular icon coloring change for OpenOffice.org.

It looks like this change:
http://hg.services.openoffice.org/DEV300/rev/b2b4215e6f9b

caused this reaction:

https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=112141

And while the easy solution would be to revert the change
and leave the older icons in place, there was a redesign
effort that motivated the change that I don't think we
should ignore:

http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Unified_ODF_Icons
http://odftoolkit.org/ODF-Icons

I would think that we should keep the new icons but
effectively color code them: it doesn't seem difficult
to do in a first glance but ultimately this is a delicate
issue that is likely to cause strong reactions in the end
user. In other words: I am not volunteering to do it ;-).

This issue is rather important to solve for AOO 3.4. So
some discussion about the issue and some general
consensus involving the wider community would be very
beneficial at this point.

best regards,

Pedro.
