Well I'm pleased you've re-named them in git because I was about to
complain about the names- Darker is a relative term, It's darker than
what? Than the Dark? Than the Grey? But you have now established that
Darker is darker than Dark! (and Lighter is lighter than Light) and
thankfully we don't have to think about localising the names.

As you say, the theme defines which symbolic icon-theme to use, and my
choice of theme would be the mid-grey (but personally I will modify it
to make the text white instead of dark) With the light symbolic icons.

As far as a new name for the "Default" theme - I think "System" does the job.

And on a side note, I'm not continuing with making pixel-aligned icons
because I've been unable to get anyone to communicate a decision about
what sizes are the default.

Sorry lately I could not make the time to think much on this specific topic. :-/

Oh one more question!

Hello all,

Now we have 5 themes in GIMP: lighter, light, gray, dark and darker.
The "Default" theme will likely stay since it corresponds to the
default theme of your desktop.
The "Small" theme will disappear as soon as we have customizable icon
size (which should be soon, there is already a working patch, but I
have to take the time and improve it before merging).

We have a symbolic icon theme in light and dark colors, and a new
color icon theme. Hopefully all these should be vectorial in the end,
allowing various scaling, while still be pixel-perfect at least for
the default size.
The original icon theme stays under the name "Legacy".

Now for GIMP 2.10, the default icon theme should likely be one of the
symbolic themes, since this is the direction where most software are
going, and historic GIMP/GNOME icon designer Jimmac really things this
is the way to go.

So the questions are:
1/ which symbolic icon theme should be the default? The dark or the
light one?
2/ which theme should be the default (of course, the answer to 1/
limits the possible answers to 2/)?

3/ Since "Default" won't be the default theme anymore, how should it be
renamed? Basically that's the theme which follows the current desktop
theme. So should it be "System"? "Desktop-integration"? Something else?

Thanks!
