I uploaded "iceape 2.0.12" a few days ago, changing the name and 
icons/logo took me almost a month. Unfortunately there are still some bugs 
in this area:  the release notes menu item for example currently still 
points to seamonkey. It should probably point to a mageia wiki page.

Since I don't like the icon that is used for debian's iceape, I created a 
new icon based on the logo. It looks like it can still be improved, 
however, and the throbber is currently static. So it would be great if 
someone could re-do the icon (without creating a completely new design), 
and animate it for the throbber (he SVG files are in iceape-branding.tar 
in the source rpm and svn)...
