This is a tracking bug for Build and Release of SeaMonkey 2.53.5 beta(s).

Depends on: 1669079

Some more words about svg icons.

Traditionally, Fedora provides two .desktop files: one for the main application, and another for "seamonkey -mail". That way users can invoke mail client immediately from the desktop. For this mail .desktop file, messengerWindow icon was used (from suite/branding/seamonkey/icons/gtk/).

As a result of technical progress :) , the size of the provided icons turned out to be too small. There was a RedHat bug rhbz#747411, where people found the corresponding icon in svg format (in suite/branding/seamonkey/icons/svg/ ) and prepared it a bit. Since then, Fedora provides such a prepared icon for the mail .desktop file.

Looking into both subdirs -- svg/ and gtk/ -- I believe we can provide all the correspond icons prepared in the same way in the svg format. IOW, complete the existing ones, say:


with the "final":


I prefer "*Scalable" here, similar to the way how svg icons are distributed in gtk-based systems, ie. (looking into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/) it is placed under "scalable" subdir, instead of "NUMxNUM" for pngs.

The presence of icons in svg format allows us to avoid extra sizes in png, since systems where large icons are needed have long supported the svg format.

BTW, the same way "defaultScalable.svg" can be provided, surely if copyrights allow a preparation into svg format (not into png only).

I can look into it further if needed. It could be easy applicable for the upcoming 2.53.5 ...
