Having a shared repo with SVG icons and tools to generate bitmaps would be awesome! I’ve been adjusting Eclipse Platform to my needs for generating @2x icons and it’s a bit hard as it is. I can only imagine how long it will take for all projects to generate @2x PNGs without such encouragement.

Best regards,
Torkild
