Hi all,

Some time ago, Alex Prokoudine played with symbolic icons from the GNOME project (https://plus.google.com/+AlexandreProkoudine/posts/LP1pWr7YEgA). This kickstarted a discussion about new (potentially default, though existing ones should also stay) themes for GIMP, one with light background, one with dark background.

Then a contributor started working (https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gimp-developer-list/2013-October/msg00020.html) from this base to create new themes from these monochrome icons.
See http://www.jesusda.com/files/symbolic-gimp.7z (dark icons)
And http://www.jesusda.com/files/symbolic-gimp_light.7z (light icons)

We would be happy to finalize such themes and include them in GIMP when they are considered finished. I've encountered some issue having them work on the dev version of GIMP which uses now icon themes instead of including the icons from the gtkrc file (basically it seems any theme of GIMP using this method to change icons will be broken by GIMP 2.10). Unfortunately I cannot make the time to try and understand what is the problem since it's not my highest priority in GIMP. If anyone is interested in the projects, know well theming and icon themes and can make such a theme working with GIMP (dev version), we welcome contributions. This could (should IMO!) still make it to GIMP 2.10 if some people are into this.

Scl also created a wiki page when we first started discussing integrating it into GIMP: http://wiki.gimp.org/index.php/Specs:UI_Theme (on the main wiki, not the GUI wiki, it would be good if both wikis were merged!).

Just throwing this here, hoping some people are interested to contribute.
