I want to be clear I am not trying to force you to use my theme. I just
wanted to enter the conversation and let you all know people seem to really
like my theme.
We had a problem (or at least an uncertainty) about the CC by-sa license.

I can release the theme in what ever license works best for you all.

It works very well. but I agree that it has to be for all platforms.

I understand that. I was pointing out that I think it would be better to
separate the icons out. My themes has 350 icons because a lot of them have
two states. Not everyone likes that, so they will use a theme will 175
icons. This is a lot of icons to include with each theme. Granted most
people will pick one and stick with that, but if they try out multiple
themes with varying icons/backgrounds the amount of icons can get very high
very quickly. where as if users were able to pick out an icon theme they
like and experiment with the background it could be very cool.
This is how it works in GIMP 2.9 (and 2.10). Old themes with icons set in

Oh cool! I have not ran 2.9 in some time. I know that my theme will have
to have a major over hall on account of moving from GTK2 to GTK3.

Yes I am the author of all the icons I cited the people who helped me out
with making my theme. When I started I knew nothing about GTK themes when I
started and the people I cited helped me understand how they work, gave me
ideas and all that. I have permission to license this theme as it is my
theme. I made the icons and wrote the gtkrc files, these people just
helped me understand them.
