It will be nice to be able to use different icon sets for different themes.
This can be a theme preference; or use a subfolder or file prefix with the theme name.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T64917: Apple Magic mouse pan is opposite for view3d.rotate.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T64591: Preferences UI for Save/Revert/Reset.

This design scares me. When you "Revert to Last" or "Reset to Factory" it may also change the "Save on Exit" state, and it looks unpredictable and dangerous. So I would prefer to always see this option as it is now, especially if it's enabled by default. Otherwise you have to constantly go to see if it's activated or not.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T62456: macOS ALT/OPTION + E bug.

This function works in this way: for example, you press Option-E and then immediately A, so "a" will be converted in the "á".
In other applications, if after Option-E you click somewhere it reset this function.
Blender "remembers" this, you can perform some action after Option-E and then when you try to enter the symbol it will convert.

Yevgeny Makarov (jenkm) added a comment to T55745: Pick Shortest Path tool, inconsistent selection.

You have some selected area, in your case it's one element but can be any number (it is the previous selection area).
Then you perform Pick Shortest Path and it adds a new selection.
The previous selection should remain unchanged, i.e. first face in your case.
