Fedora 7 Test 3 LiveDesktop icons

I am writing this blog from the LiveDesktop Fedora 7 Test 3. I noticed the Echo icon is based on the old version as there is no new icons yet like Browser, Mail. It appears the index.list from Echo tarball is not updated.

At this time, I am working on creating a flat keyboard icon close to the OLPC XO version. Some models are available on fedora-art-list. Note that the perspective is not correct which will be fixed later. I will use this model as the base of other variant like character input, keyboard shortcut to name few.

On EchoDevelopment wiki, I noticed there is no name like shutdown. In that case, I will create a name for these new icons. Stuck with daily working life, the team is doing in best to complete the base stock icons along with the new cursor.
