"Tango is a 100% ripoff of KDE's Appeal project. Additionally, Tango is not supposed to be a Gnome project ;-). "

Sure but look at the icons, they are more inline with GNOME and a replacement for current GNOME icon set. Tango icons (in my view) are not for KDE since they just dont fit, but are perfect for GNOME. Lets not talk about ripoff's because KDE has alot of them from GNOME, but thats opensource for yer. GDM theming in KDM and kicker add to panel are just two examples.

So you are saying that Tango is just claiming to be cross-desktop, but really is a (closet) GNOME project? So why are some people komplaining that KDE is not participating?

I would say KDE is much more inspired by other projects and ideas than GNOME. I have the feeling you suffer from the BIWIH (But it was invented here) syndrom.

I have not seen anything new in GNOME that has not been in another system. (Neither have I seen that in KDE but I did not argue that that was the case, did I).

Well yes, but the point is that they're pretending it's a cross-desktop effort.

Well no - Tango obviously takes more than it's fair share of ideas and purpose from Appeal.

GDM theming in KDM and kicker add to panel are just two examples.

Right. Like that's ripping anything off.

I'm still trying to figure out where there is even a similarity between Tango and Appeal (aside from both being cool projects), what are you thinking about?
