Public bug reported:

Following UI freeze, testing has discovered some icon bugs which could
be fixed if an exception were granted.  They are as follows.

1) Missing symlinks cause Gnome control centre to fall back to non-Yaru
symbols for power settings and online accounts.  The fallback symbols
are thicker than the corresponding ones in Yaru and look out of place
next to the others. describes the issue and fixes it by adding the missing
symlinks (both with screenshots).

2) A background process puts a poorly rendered, pixellated Yaru icon on
the launcher when it errors.  The cause was determined to be a symlink.
Removing this causes the process to fall back to a pre-Yaru icon which
is properly rendered.  The proposed fix at this stage is merely to
remove the symlink, because an old icon rendered properly is better than
a Yaru one with pixels. describes the issue and
diagnosis (with screenshots) and fixes it.

3) A missing symlink causes Gnome Notes to use a non-Yaru icon when we
have a Yaru icon for Notes.  Adding the missing symlink would fix this.
describes the problem with screenshot.

All three issues could be fixed and fully tested with minimal risk
simply by adding a small number of symlinks and removing one other.  The
benefit would be making the theme more polished in time for 19.04,
rather than shipping it with three bugs that could be fixed.  The
changes have been tested by the Yaru team in branches of Yaru and the
nature of these cosmetic changes makes them low risk.  Because they're
icon defects, they would otherwise be visible to all users of Ubuntu,
and fixing them would have a good ratio of risk to benefit IMHO.
