You appear to have missed something.  I have made BOTH CrystalSVG and 
HiColor icons for these new icons.  So, I fail to see your point.  And, 
what are those icons themes in KDEArtWork?

That has nothing to do with what I said which was that GNOME ships a 
HiColor icon theme:


To correct what you said.  The GNOME package does not include the 
"index.theme" file but rather requires that you install:


KDE has an "index.theme" file for HiColor in the KDELibs package.  IIRC, 
it was modified slightly although I can't remember exactly how or why.
