I am planning to create a new Icon Theme Package for open distribution, however before I waste too much time I need to answer a few questions.
First of all I plan to create an Icon theme that applies to as many applications as possible.
My intent is that when you apply a 'Theme', it does not just apply to your desktop but for instance also apply to Firefox, Opera, Chrome,
Rythmbox, Vlc, and so on.
I don't want to just create a few symbols but all buttons and window decorations etc... and so on,
in other words a complete global theme, this involves several hundred icons and specific themes
The purpose is, for instance, if i download a theme called 'Space Invaders' I want my desktop to have a space invaders retro look,
but if I install say Cairo dock or AWN I want them to have the same theme and matching icons.
My first question is: Is it possible to generate such a package? I already know how to create themes for Opera and so on,
and I know I can generate a theme package, but can I put them in a package that applies them with all other icons and appropriate themes?
My second question is: When do I have to credit someone for their contribution if I use their art work as a base but
make many changes to it. I don't plan to create them all from scratch but they will all be unique.
I will have more questions soon, but It will depend on responses to these questions.
Thanks all for your input.
