David Zeuthen mailed me about adding a few device types to gnome-icon-theme. He proposed a generic set of icons and emblems to replace the current incomplete and rather chaotic state of device icons. One thing I don’t quite agree with is having a specific type of emblem to distinguish filesystems used on a device (especially since there may may multiple partitions). The icon would already be enough obscured by all the labels and emblems.
Btw If you like the icons, feel free to drop Iva a mail and thank her for letting me work on Sunday. :)
