<center><font size="72">HA HA HA THIS SITE HAS BEEN UBERLY PWNED! <br>(Oh and HACKED)</font>
We have already designed a basic set of Tango icons that is far from complete, yet usable on KDE and Gnome already.
* '''[[Tango Icon Gallery]]''' - a sample implementation of the naming spec following the style guidelines.
* '''[[Tango Screenshots]]''' - see how we're progressing in unification of the look.
=== CVS ===
You can check out the '''tango-icon-theme''' module from freedesktop.org cvs:
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/tango login
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/tango co tango-icon-theme
You can check out the '''icon-naming-utils''' module from freedesktop.org cvs:
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/icon-theme login
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/icon-theme co icon-naming-utils
An extended set of tango icons is available in the '''tango-icon-theme-extras''' module from freedesktop.org cvs:
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/tango login
cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.freedesktop.org:/cvs/tango co tango-icon-theme-extras

== Lookup ==
The Tango icon library contains a basic set of icons for the most common usage. To make it easier for a developer to find an appropriate icon for his application a number of aids are there to help.
The SVG versions of the icons contain useful meta information such as keywords which enable searching. [[Standard Icon Naming Specification | The naming specification]] defines structured naming scheme that also helps.
In future we also plan to provide a web-based searching facility for finding icons easily.
== How to Participate ==
* You may file bugs in our [https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=tango Bugzilla]
* The icon-naming-utils may be missing links to existing names. Patches are welcome on the tango mailing list.
* You should make sure you have read and understood [[Generic Icon Theme Guidelines]]. Suggestions to improve the guidelines to better match the goals of the Tango project are welcome on the [http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/tango-artists tango-artists mailing list].
* As for file formats, the bitmap icons should be RGBA [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Png PNG] and the vector icons in [http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/ SVG] format.
* While this is no ''requirement'', we suggest you use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software Free Software] to produce the artwork. Try [http://www.inkscape.org Inkscape] for a vector editor and [http://www.gimp.org GIMP] fits the bill perfectly as a bitmap icon editor.
* Join the [http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/tango-artists Tango-artists mailing list].
* If you are an independent software vendor and you aim to comply with theme guidelines, let us know your thoughts too. [[Tango Screenshots|Screenshots]] are welcome.
== Additional Sets ==
While the base set aims to fulfill the core icon needs, we are working on additional icon sets for used in specialized applications.
* [[ArtLibreSet|Art Libre Set]] -- for graphics applications.
* [[TangoDeprecated|Tango Deprecated]] -- widely used icons that don't make much sense to drag along.
* [http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=40047 Gaim theme] -- theme for Gaim.
* [http://www.bomahy.nl/hylke/tango/files/tango-emotes-kopete-0.1.0.tar.gz Emotes Kopete] -- smiley theme for kopete.
* [http://www.uhoreg.ca/programming/tango-emoticons.jisp Emotes Psi] -- smiley theme for Psi.
* [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/OrangeTango Orange Tango] -- a derivative of the standard Tango theme, using a more orange approach.
* [https://addons.mozilla.org/themes/moreinfo.php?id=1567 Tango Icons for Firefox] -- Mozilla Firefox theme
