Hi everybody, especially Quentin,

Hi Uli,

there are at least three frameworks for Cocoa/GNUstep out there called IconKit. Would it be a good idea to rename the official GNUstep icon kit
Quentin is working on? My suggestions would be:


Not sure, but I have done some search with Google and there are only one programming framework called IconKit, the other stuff which more or less includes the words "Icon" and "Kit" are not related to development, precisely talking are not even called exactly IconKit. The previously quoted IconKit framework is OpenStep related (Deek told me that first) and is no more in use, then I think it is ok to use IconKit denomination for our project.

Anyway if people really think we should rename this framework, may be something like CoreIconKit or IconicKit could be ok.

A google search mostly returns the OpenStep IconKit, some classes in Java and some icons in flash... (our IconKit is even already in 2nd position, and the first programming link..) Frankly, a name change doesn't seem to be needed. I would say we continue with it.

But Uli, you cite three others IconKit for Cocoa, could you give us more informations ? If there is other kits than the old IconKit, we probably need to change.
Though IconKit is a very well-suited name :-D
