When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

The thing is, when you repackage the Oxygen icons you're not _participating_. You're leeching. You're not giving anything to the Oxygen project, you're just pre-empting their release. And that's not behaviour. Participation in the oxygen project -- for instance by creating new icons -- is not closed to anyone.
