* 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
