The packages start to build : http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/
THe last estimation is a first alpha for the end of the month.

You're the first to work on it.

Because it will take time to reach an agreement on the guidelines, and
that we will replace and redesign it anyway.

I don't know about the monochrome thing.
It the Tango/Crystal icon is Ok, take it and move on.

The logo is in refinement stage, and then will be published in SVG, I
think. But we don't need it now.

The purpose now is to replace icons. The fact that we use SVG or other
format is dictated by the need to replace with the same format of the
original file, to ensure compatibility (a program design to use a PNG
might not be able to open a SVG).

Have a nice day
