Projects/Oxygen/namingSpec/actions

Only partially ready for consumption. We already found out about which Oxygen icons already conform to the spec, but the ones that don't conform are not all listed in here yet, and there's not yet a plan at the moment on how to proceed with those.

Specification compliance of icon names

Icon names without notes already exist in the freedesktop.org icon naming specification.

 *  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

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

 address-book-new
   The icon used for the action to create a new address book.
   (or "new-address-book", depending on the outcome
    of the discussion.)

 appointment-new
   The icon used for the action to create a new appointment
   in a calendaring application. (or "new-appointment",
   depending on the outcome of the discussion)

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

 edit-find-replace
   The icon for the find and replace action.

 edit-select-all
   The icon for the select all action.

 format-text-direction-ltr
   The icon for the left-to-right text formatting action.

 format-text-direction-rtl
   The icon for the right-to-left formatting action.

 help-about
   The icon for the About item in the Help menu.
   (Editor's note: not used in KDE, probably a copy of
    the "(i)" icon is sufficient.)

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

 insert-link
   The icon for the insert link action of an application.

 insert-object
   The icon for the insert object action of an application.

 mail-mark-important
   The icon for the mark as important action of an
   electronic mail application.

 mail-mark-junk
   The icon for the mark as junk action of an
   electronic mail application.

 mail-mark-read
   The icon for the mark as read action of an
   electronic mail application.

 mail-mark-unread
   The icon for the mark as unread action of an
   electronic mail application.

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

 object-flip-horizontal
   The icon for the action to flip an object horizontally.

 object-flip-vertical
   The icon for the action to flip an object vertically.

 view-sort-ascending
   The icon used for the "Sort Ascending" item in the
   application's "View" menu, or in a button for
   changing the sort method for a list.

 view-sort-descending
   The icon used for the "Sort Descending" item in the
   application's "View" menu, or in a button for
   changing the sort method for a list.

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.

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

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

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

 dialog-apply
   The icon used for the "Apply" button that might appear
   in dialog windows.

 edit
   The icon for the generic edit action.
   (Rationale: There are a lot of things that need to be edited:
    bookmarks, contacts, todos, away messages, fill/stroke colors,
    app specific item properties of any kind, ...
    There should be a generic edit icon as a common ground
    and fallback for these use cases.)

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

 insert-table
   The icon for the insert table action of an application.

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

 mail-reply-sender -> mail-reply
   (Rationale: In order to support more reply methods than
    the expected ones. KMail, at least, has "Reply" as
    "intelligent reply" - automatically do the right thing -
    and also "Reply to all", "Reply to author" and
    "Reply to mailing list". The latter is not in the spec,
    and doesn't need to be, but in order to enable
    mail-reply-list, we need a mail-reply fallback.)

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

 system-search -> system-find
   The icon used for the "Find Files/Folders" item in the
   desktop's panel application.
   (Rationale: For consistency - edit-find also uses Find,
    and there's no good reason to use Search here.)

 tab-detach
   The icon used for the "Detach Tab" action.

 tab-duplicate
   The icon used for the "Duplicate Tab" action.

 tab-new
   The icon used for the "New Tab" action.

 tab-close
   The icon used for the "Close Tab" action.

 zoom-fit-height
   The icon used for the "Zoom to Height" item
   in the application's "View" menu.
   
 zoom-fit-width
   The icon used for the "Zoom to Width" item
   in the application's "View" menu.
   
 zoom-fit-best (instead of zoom-best-fit)
