Actually I think I meant Gnome as in "FreeDesktop compliant
I don't have one of those. I wonder how many XEmacsers do. In any
case, it's useful to distribute pre-sized icons for use in other
contexts (eg, AFAIK github and bitbucket accept PNGs but not SVGs).
Also, IIRC XEmacs handles its own icons. We'd need to add code to
inform the desktop of our preferred icon file, and deal with dynamic
icons (cf frame-icon.el), wouldn't we?
although I'm not sure it's XDG defined or some other
Please, don't demote those folks to "pseudo". They're doing a useful
job. Even though I don't use it much, XDG (and related FDO standards)
are standard enough for me to think XEmacs should provide conformant
features for XDG where possible (and developer labor is available).
Another option is to use Haiku's HVIF icon format, but
probably less portable (although Icon-O-Matic can export (and
I think SVG is the way to go, since it's already well-known and
portable. HVIF could be distributed as an alternative, though. It's
not like putting all of these extra formats in is going to bloat the
distribution by 50%. :-)
But I suppose since nobody still knows what xattrs are and can do on
linux, it's kinda moot. :D
That hasn't stopped us in the past. Feel free to post patches that
take advantage of them!
Btw, what's the current official icon, I've seen so many of
Dunno. I don't think we have an "official" one. Candidates and an
election may be in order? :-)
