These look great. Thanks!

That's fine. A good sign of "street smarts" is how we respond to our own laziness. :-) As we are rebranding, we can choose to do what we want. :-)

I can create the smaller icon sizes from the ones you attached.

Oops --- I updated that one and forgot to remove from my list. :-)

We can't change the app names (not yet anyway). How about deleting the gear? Without the gear the app name remains intact but we eliminate the perception of KDE3 branding.

With kverbos, use the updated svgz to create the png, and we're done with that batch.

By the way, in my last perusal for image branding, I focused only on png images. I did not grep for svg(z) and jpeg. We probably should do that. :-)
