Bug Description

This should not appear as a system theme, it's an application specific icon theme for notify-osd.

So, I think regardless of the selected system theme we always want notify-osd to use this theme, so it shouldn't be called "humanity" or so.

The present method of having a separate theme for notify-osd and having to add it in the inherits , is not sane
All apps have their own icons in the /usr/share/appname/icons/...
Apps just use the icons in the /usr/share/appsname/... as a fallback when themes dont have specific icons.

Notify-osd already has icons > /usr/share/notify-osd/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/

  * Turn this into an icon set for notify-osd, don't pretend we are a generic
    GNOME icon theme: (LP: #435836)
    - Makefile: Throw out all the index.theme building, i18n, and
      icon-naming-utils stuff.
    - Makefile: Install into /usr/share/notify-osd/icons/gnome/.
    - debian/control: Drop icon-naming-utils and intltool build dependencies.
    - Remove
    - Remove po/*.

I shuffled the icons to be a notify-osd specific icon set now, thanks for the hints!

Now I wonder whether humanity should indeed inherit from notify-osd still, since it's not actually a real icon set any more?
