SVG are then converted into PNGs

There was not an issue until you spotted it :)

I'm the coordinator for icon replacement.
For 1st iteration, we don't have artistic guidelines.

We start with the icons from the component desktop-common-data.

For each icon, the preferred solution is to take one from KDE or GNOME
If still missing, you can do a basic icon yourself, but don't put too
much time in it, it will be re-replaced when the final marketing
guidelines will be published.

We replace the images with image in the same *format* and with same
*size*. If the size mismatch, cut or add some blank content.

Don't forget that the goal is to replace the icons, in a very short time.

What NOT to do:
- take an icon from the web (copyright problems)
- spend too much time replacing ONE icon (we must be quick for the 1st

Have a nice day
