What are "buffer colors"? Do you mean background and foreground
colors of the default face?
We were thinking it might go in edit-utils package--what do you
The second file is icon-themes.el, a package to change icons as a
"set" in the XEmacs menu bar.
"Menu bar"? Do you mean the toolbar? The menubar doesn't normally
sport icons AFAIK, I don't even know if it supports them.
I think that one can go in edit-utils as well.
Oxygen (from KDE)
Open Icon Library
default icons that come with XEmacs
Are these GPL-compatible (either under the GPL or under a license that
that is freer in all respects than the GPL)? If not, I don't think we
should include them in the same package. To avoid GPL encumbrance,
they should be distributed in a separate package as a "convenience to
users", not as part of our distribution. As long as it's a verbatim
distribution (which makes sense for icons), the "mere aggregation"
clause clearly covers us.
The second question is, once we figure out where to upload them,
who do we ask for permission to upload them at that place (or
Mike Sperber <mike(a)xemacs.org>. You need to get (a) bitbucket
account(s) and commit access to the relevant packages, then add the
new files, commit, and push. Then send mail to Norbert Koch
<viteno(a)xemacs.org>, who actually creates the tarballs and uploads
them to the FTP/HTTP host. I'm not sure what to do about non-GPL icon
themes; they'll have to wait.
I could probably do it it (I think I have the permissions) but I
haven't done it yet and Mike is more likely to be able to get things
worked out on your time schedule.
