Adding of Place Icons
Submitted by Rishi Raj Singh Jhelumi
The patch is w.r.t bug #730896. Geocode-glib maybe planning to deprecate their get_icon method and remove the poi icons.
In my POI patches also I am using the same set of maki (https://github.com/mapbox/maki) icons (even more) as is currently used by geocode-glib.
The location of these icons also needs to be decided.
From What I asked at IRC and according to https://wiki.gnome.org/HowDoI/ThemedIcons , icons should be installed at "$(DESTDIR)$(datadir)/icons/hicolor/scalable/places/poi-XXX.svg".
In the above case, if a library (geocode-glib) installs the icons to the same location and later uninstalls it, the maps won't be able to access it. But, If geocode-glib is removing icons, we may not need worry :).
Or if we install to "$(DESTDIR)$(datadir)/icons/hicolor/scalable/places/gnome-maps-poi-xxx.svg" this might be a safe bet.
