Licensing Question Re the Icon set

Hi. I'm not sure this is the right place to ask but I couldn't find a better forum.
I was wondering what is the license of the icons of IDEA? more specifically, can I use them in another open source, non commercial product?

Thanks.

Since no one answered - can anyone suggest a better place to ask this question?

IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition in its entirety, including the icons, is licensed under the Apache 2 license. Note that the product icons (such as the "JI" icon) and the splash screen/about box images are or contain trademarks of JetBrains, so you can't use them in a different product. Everything else can be used.

Thanks a lot Dmitri. That's what I thought, I just wanted to make sure.

Two questions:

a. IIRC taking content from an Apache 2 project into an LGPL project should not pose a problem, right? (the licensing choice isn't mine in this case)

b. Any chance you'll ever release the icons as SVGs or some other editable vector format so they can be truly "open sourced"? :)

a. As long as you follow the attribution requirements stated in the Apache 2 license, you should be fine.

b. We have no such plans. AFAIK our icons are usually not rendered directly from a vector drawing.
