What happened to faenza/faiance?

Well it's been over a year since the talented Matthieu James launched faenza icons 1.3.1. I wrote him an e-mail pointing out several symlinks needed for a few updated packages but got no response. What happened? I heard he was hired by Canonical to design a new icon theme for Ubuntu so... does that mean this is the end?

Yes it looks like he doesn't maintain these icons anymore. That's to bad. Also his GTK3/Gnome Shell theme was very nice. It's was the only GTK Theme that didn't look odd in some scenarios.

I always wanted to try and fix this myself but I never had time and I have no experience with GTK theming and what changed from his version to the latest version.

This blog post I found some days ago might help:

Re: What happened to faenza/faiance?

Faenza is the best icon set I've ever seen 'in action'. Fits like a glove on gnome 3.x. Wonder why he quit the project since it's so popular. Some new applications, such as Maps, Music, Photos and Weather are just calling for the squared icons from the set. I was willing to donate some money to him in exchange for some more icons, even asked if there was an alternative to paypal because my bank doesn't support it yet. No response sad

If the project is really dead, can we so some kind of crowdfunding to 'revive' it?

Good news everybody! Artists, inkscape wizards, enthusiasts alike - I call upon thee!

I made a guthub project to try to keep Faenza going on smile
