Discussing Genericons and Dashicons with Ipstenu and George…

Discussing Genericons and Dashicons with Ipstenu and George Stephanis at WCSF Contributor Day, and wanted to bring this up for more discussion.

See also #24864.

Proposal: could we merge the two icon sets and have it be included in core?

A few things to consider:

  • We’d have only one icon source to update.
  • There’s already enough overlap. (But, would Genericons users want the extra icons?)
  • Bundling in core will mean fewer themes and plugins needing to maintaining their own version.
  • Would this bottleneck maintaining the icon source over time? If it’s tied to core development cycle it’d be slower to iterate.
