            + Is that issue for the Navigator too (I dont read it from the issue)
              and in Writer the choice anycase was to allow opening separate too. (Cor, after discussion on 20150128)
                + the bug report only discusses the separate formulas sidebar in calc (Jay)

              + visual design (color scheme, icons)

    * UI Guidelines (Heiko)

    * Icon Updates / Issues (Jay)
        + Applications icons: logos or icons?
            + Marketing team view: Applications icons are just icons.
            + Starcenter is a branded part of LibreOffice (Heiko)
            + conclusion: Up to the icon theme designers - if they want to theme those icons in
              the start center in their theme, they can
            + NB: Still there is the bug that wrong theme is used sometimes! - must be fixed for 5.0
