 *  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
 *** badly named in the spec imho, let's try to get this changed

To do for Oxygen

Icons that are in the spec, but not yet in Oxygen's actions/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification

   The icon used for initiating or accepting a call. Should be
   similar to the standard cellular call pickup icon, a green
   handset with ear and mouth pieces facing upward.
   (Says the spec... I think we can be more flexible.)

   The icon used for stopping a current call. Should be similar
   to the standard cellular call hangup icon, a red handset
   with ear and mouth pieces facing downward.
   (Says the spec... I think we can be more flexible.)

   The icon for the send action. Should be an arrow pointing up
   and away from a hard disk.
   (Says the spec... I think we can be more flexible.)

   The icon for the page setup action of a document editor.

   The icon for the find and replace action.

   The icon for the FAQ item in the Help menu.
   (Editor's note: not used in KDE either, at the moment.)

   The icon for the insert object action of an application.

   The icon for the send and receive action of an
   electronic mail application.

   The icon used for the desktop's software installer application.

Summary of the suggested changes and additions

The ones marked with * and should therefore go into the icon naming specification, presented here in a shorter list for a better overview. Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec.

   The icon used for the action that extracts files and directories
   from an archive.

   The icon used for the action that inserts files and directories
   into an archive.

   The icon used for the action that removes files and directories
   from an archive.

   The icon used for the action that saves all or part of
   the current document, often in a format that cannot be
   opened again with this application.

   The icon used for the action that adds the contents of
   external files to the current document.

   The icon used for previewing a document in read-only mode.

   Should probably be document-preview-print, so that there's
   a possibility of having document-preview (which is a better
   fallback anyways than document-print).

   The icon for the contextual help / "What's this" icon
   in the Help menu.

   The icon for the insert table action of an application.

   The icon for the receive action of an
   electronic mail application.

   The icon used for the "Switch User" item in the
   desktop's panel application.

   The icon used for the "Detach Tab" action.

   The icon used for the "Duplicate Tab" action.

   The icon for the menu action "Window -> Move Tab Left"

   The icon for the menu action "Window -> Move Tab Right"

   The icon used for the "New Tab" action.

   The icon used for the "Close Tab" action.

   The icon used for the "Close Other Tabs" action.

   The icon used for the "Suspend Computer" action.

   The icon used for the "Zoom to Height" item
   in the application's "View" menu.
   The icon used for the "Zoom to Width" item
   in the application's "View" menu.
