Thank you very much :)

I'll look into it and I get back to you.

Oh, not again :P
I still have the problem with the help icon you fixed and I just look
the warning icon that you attached and it's worng for me too.
I don't know what could be. Maybe we have different versions of Inkscape?

The Rhythmbox icon goes to the apps folder with the same name as the
application in lowercase.
I don't know exactly where goes CD Burner icon. You want to replace
the one on the places menu?
About the icons, I already upload the Rhythmbox icon, but for some
reason it's missing on the last revisions. I'll commit it on the next
About the CD Burner icon, I think the same way as Anton.

I forgot to copy the PNG to their respective folders, I'll do it on
the next commit.

I like what shadowh511 is proposing for the hibernate icon. I'll try
to make it later and see how it looks.
