ok ... tango-project.org is back ...
after a talk with dobey, the maint. of icon naming spec, i have some news:
system-users (system-group) icon is not to use as Benny does ...
obviously this is just his own opinion, but that icon is not for that
He told those two icons in thunar are not really useful, as they even
ruin the text alignment:
and i agree, but i can't really say he was open to suggestions :) ...
he didn't try to understand | ask why thunar is using those icons ...
he just told me "that 's not the way" ..
Anyway he will happy to patch the xml file, adding the xfce icon names.
Some icons that seems not correct are:
Icon=xfce-schedule --> Icon=appointment-new
Icon=xfce-system-info --> Icon=dialog-information

It seems even gnome icon name are absolete and will change soon.
I personally think that if that stuff is going to be a standard,
people as you (xfce devels) should have the possiblity to propose what
you would ....
or instead of having something that fits your needs ... you'll need to
fit your needs on those spec ... if you'll want to use them.
I'll read better the spec, and it would be nice if you could take a
look on them ... and maybe explain if there is something you don't
