indeed, we can now think how to make that repository public... and check how to manage it, too!
last week i to change a bit the concept.
i wanted to start from the current scribus icons and replace the icons one by one, as soon as new ones exist.
craig told me to change the license (to the GPL + some specific conditions that do not matter to icons) and, since i prefer having standard licenses that are easier to manage in the long term, i had to replace all the icons by empty placeholders.
the current cc-by-sa license should be compatible with the scribsu license.
further, we will have to create a patch to scribus that adds a preference for the location of the icons or a script that replaces only the icons that we have.
both are probably rather easy to do.
but, first, i want to see icons :-)
