That is exactly what I said :)

I accept that it is difficult to have democracy in such a
large community.
My argument is that FOSS is not inherently incompatible
with democracy,
contrary to David's logical demonstration and to Charles'
argumentation.

In any case it would be a futile exercise to "just do" a
Poll since it would
not bind anyone to the results :)
I won't be so pessimistic. Of course, if it's a poll without
any process and defined workflow, I agree with you. But if
before you put an organization in place, it won't be futile
and could bring a lot to the project.


Even though I did forward my 2 cents on the issue, I didn't have such a strong opinion on the matter (the usual 5% of the users I occationally support will moan, I'm sure).

To me, the case was solved by those who were there - at the time it happened - so be it. Maybe I'm not really bothered because this about a (trivial?) thing which then may be overruled/changed in the future, when/if there will be a more general policy-decision about icon-sets and theming. And before taking such bigger (democratic) decisions, there's a lot of work to do.
