It seems you're working both on an icon theme and on backgrounds,

icon set is very large, and we wouldn't want to switch from the default
icon set if the coverage of the new icon set isn't 100%. The rest
(backgrounds, engines, etc.) is fine. The only other criteria for
acceptance I know of is that the default engine should be "light"
especially in terms of CPU usage.

gnome-icon-theme source package. You should be able to install the
gnome-icon-theme under unstable without pulling anything else (you
might experience a missing screensaver icon, and perhaps some other
