Yes, it was also my impression that he did it with good intentions.

However, I've send a similiar mail to this list several weeks ago 
without a solution, so I had to find a better way to fix the current 
problematic situation.

Could you send me his mail address (or contact him), so I can discuss 
the current issue with him?

Well, I guess we have to find a way to deal with the problem in a more 
general way, nothing to do with david at all.

Anyway, I had the very immediate interest to deal with the current 
situation, as there are already several users complaining about the icon 
display in JOSM and there's also a trac ticket about this.

So fixing up the icons myself and waiting for david to revert my changes 
was not the way I intended to go ;-)
