 * 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 devices/ (after renaming) so they need to be added. Descriptions taken from the specification.

   The icon used for the audio rendering device.

   The fallback icon for video cameras

   The icon used for optical media drives such as CD and DVD.

   The fallback icon used for flash media, such as memory stick
   and SD.

   The icon used for generic physical tape media.


It's currently not clear if those will stay in the spec, you might hold off drawing those icons until it's clear what will happen with them.

   The icon used for wired network connections.

   The icon used for wireless network connections.

Don't know what to do with...

   The specification does not contain any low-level processing
   units, such as CPUs or RAM. I can't think of an appropriate
   "category" name for those. The only word that I found which
   comes close was "internal-*" (internal-cpu, internal-memory, ...)
   but I'm not sure if this consistent with the rest of the
   devices category in the spec and extensible enough.
   Input and better ideas appreciated.
   I would suggest using the existing base level: "computer"

Summary of the suggested 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 handsfree headset devices that combine a pair
   of headphones or earphones with a microphone.

   The icon used for audio line input devices.

   The icon used for a portable computing device as a whole.

   The icon used for remotely accessed drives, such as
   NFS or WebDAV mounts.

   The icon used for a projector that video gets displayed to.

   The icon used for a television device, such as
   CRT or flat panel displays.

Summary of optional suggested additions

The ones marked with *, but less important, maybe a good idea, but they are not absolutely needed for inclusion.

   The icon used for recordable physical optical media,
   such as CD-R and DVD-R.
