Hi Guys,
I totally agree with you John. If you think you want to go ahead and review
Konstantin icons and submit small groups of new and improved icons, I think
that would be a terrific idea.

I just would like you to be a little "sensitive" on the fact that whatever
improvement on kiCad looks is totally welcome but it would be great if it
could come gradually. The KiCad documentation (in all its languages) is not
really ready for a totally new icon look.

I think it would be totally great if we could first go ahead with the
submission of this
https://code.launchpad.net/~john-j-beard/kicad/+git/kicad/+ref/icons

plus the icon in attachment.

this is just my 2c.

Cheers
Fabrizio
