Why were custom icons removed in this release (e.g. HD drive icons). In gTango 1.01, the icons were more custom, now many of them are just Tango.

Okies I love this! I just think your custom icons are just as nice as Tangos but better and custom, and I like that. :)

I love the semi-transparent drive icons, they're just neat. :)

Also, archive icons, cool idea adding the tape and upc.

gTango upgraded, just what I've been waiting for. :)

Hey, I'm the author of the Tango Generator here on gnome-look on which your theme seems, in part, to be based. First off, I'd like to congratulate you on an original and good looking icon theme. I'm very impressed with your work so please don't take any of the following comments the wrong way.

However you have packaged GPL and Creative Commons icons together. By licensing the whole package as GPL, you're essentially permitting anyone who downloads it to use the Creative Commons icons under the terms of the GPL, which is against the wishes of the artists who drew those icons. You could, technically, be liable for copyright infringement (although the chances of anyone prosecuting you are pretty much zero). I spent a significant amount of time ensuring conflicting icons were kept in separate packaged with my generator, and attributed all authors.

Secondly, many of the icons you've used are higher res icons directly scaled down to lower resolutions, rather than redrawn for these resolutions. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but as explained at http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Icon_Theme_Guidelines#sizes this must be done to conform to the Tango style guidelines (although ultimately it is, of course, your decision). I'd have a go at it myself if I wasn't quite so busy at the moment...

Finally, it's considered good manners to attribute anyone who's work you use, even in an open source project, and the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 2.5 (which many Tango icons are under) actually specifies this.

One way to get around the above licensing issues is to package the icons separately and provide a way for your user to merge them - one of the original goals of my Tango Generator - although obviously the individual licenses must still be conformed to. If you'd like this help with this I can most likely provide some.

Sorry if this comes across overly critical - I like your original icons very much but am a strong believer in FOSS which falls apart if licenses aren't obeyed.
