Thank you for the review, Mr. Courtès.

Attached are the updated patches.

Yes, sir. It seems that breeze-assets is licensed under GPL2 only (I couldn't find "or any later version" in their license file:

I am also concerned regarding the naming of the `breeze` package. I wonder if that is a good name. But I can't quite think of any other name. `kde-breeze`? `breeze-style`? I don't know... I worry that this name (if it is not the most convenient) might get stuck once it is merged and other packages start to build on top of it. I don't know.

Please indent like this:

    (inherit breeze-icons)
    (name …)

> +           (synopsis "Artwork, styles and assets for the Breeze visual style")

Please write full sentences for the description:

Is it GPL-version-2-only?  That’d mean that source file headers (or
similar) explicitly omit the “or any later version” wording.

In general, use of ‘@’ must be avoided: it’s better to just import the
modules you need.

More importantly though, you must not inherit from a package defined in
another module as that would prevent modules from being loaded.

The solution here is probably to duplicate all the fields instead of
inheriting.  In this case, that’s probably not going to be much longer
anyway.  And if you want, you can add a comment saying that breeze is
based on MATE or something.


Thank you,
