Icon names without trailing stars already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.
bookmarks OK ** document-multiple OK ** (KDE 3 name: kmultiple) favorites ?? folder OK folder-remote OK folder-red, folder-blue, folder-brown, folder-cyan, folder-green, folder-grey, folder-orange, folder-violet, folder-yellow -> Keep for now, but try to bring up some substitute functionality, like tinting folders by code, or putting the regular folder on a colored background. folder-bookmarks, folder-development, folder-html, folder-image, folder-important, folder-locked, folder-print, folder-sound, folder-tar, folder-txt, folder-video -> svn rm (emulate with folder + emblem overlay) mail-folder-inbox OK ** (KDE 3 name: folder_inbox) mail-folder-outbox OK ** (KDE 3 name: folder_outbox) mail-message ?? (KDE 3 name: mail_generic) network-workgroup OK (KDE 3 name: network) network-server OK (KDE 3 name: server) network-server-database OK ** (no corresponding icon in KDE 3) start-here OK (did not exist in KDE 3) start-here-kde OK ** (KDE 3 name: apps/kmenu) user-desktop OK (KDE 3 name: filesystems/desktop) user-home OK (KDE 3 names: folder_home, folder_home2) user-identity OK ** (KDE 3 name: identity) user-trash OK (KDE 3 name: trashcan_empty) * suggesting this for inclusion into the icon naming specification ** not in the spec, but let's keep it out of there anyways, it's not really suited to be a standard icon
Nothing to be done, places implements all of the naming spec correctly :D
