    Tango seems like a nice idea, however:
    – Why is there no one from KDE involved?
    – Is the CC-SA license ok with debian? I seem to remember debian having issues with that license for their documentation. Excluding one of the largest distributions (and one that really cares about Free software) right off the bat, doesn’t seem like a good way to start a standard.

    Nice Work! Will you do a Firefox theme, like you did for Industrial?

    Wow, I guess this is out in the open now. 🙂 This mean we can finally get #tango going on OPN?

    Seems like there’s a dns-error when clicking the tango-project link… could the address not be active?

    for a summary of what the debian legal people thinks about those licenses read


    and whitout reading it. it is obvious that CC-ShareAlike licenses are incompatible with the GPL/LGPL. By linking an CC-ShareAlike licenced icon with any other code, I must license it with the same license, so it can not be GPL or LGPL.

    I hate all those licenses incompatibilities….. 🙁
