Love this icon set. But I do wish the stock folder color was orange or maybe yellow. The blue folders clash with the breeze color scheme of KDE. I think orange or yellow would be a better stock color since it would blend better with both Breeze in Plasma and Adwaita in Gnome apps.

Evolution is main Email application in Gnome and I wondered to see that Papirus isn't supporting it. It's half Papirus and half Gnome. It's looking horrible :)

Drafts and Templates icons - it's upstream bugs. Devs use app and mime icon for actions.
