 * 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
 *** bad naming in the spec imho, suggesting to rename this icon
     there, but let's use the specified name for now

To do for Oxygen - specified icons

None, everything's in place in the "categories" category :D

To do for Oxygen - optional icons

These icons are good to have, but even if we lack those there will be a sensible fallback.

 applications-games-arcade **
   An icon for arcade games, like KTron or Clanbomber.

 applications-games-board **
   An icon for board games, like Mahjongg or Chess.

 applications-games-children **
   An icon for games for small children,
   like the scary Potato Guy.

 applications-games-strategy **
   An icon for strategy games, like Minesweeper,
   Sokoban or Battle for Wesnoth.

 applications-games-card **
   An icon for card games... but for Oxygen, we already have
   a card set icon as fallback, so it doesn't make much sense
   to draw a new icon. Just listed for completeness.

Suggested changes and additions

Including a suggested short description text like needed for inclusion in the spec.

   [In the description, change "Programming" to "Development",
    in accordance to the icon name and the fd.o menu spec.]

   The icon for the "Education" sub-menu of the Programs menu.

 preferences-desktop-peripherals -> preferences-peripherals
   The icon for the "Peripherals" preferences category.

 preferences-desktop-personal -> preferences-personal
   The icon for the "Personal" preferences category.

 preferences-system-network -> preferences-network
   The icon for the "Network" preferences category.

Rationale for the renames:

The preferences-desktop-* ones are very implementation specific, as it's not specified anywhere that the "peripherals" and "personal" preferences need to be a child element of the desktop preferences. Likewise, "network" settings don't necessarily reside in the preferences-system category in certain desktops.
