Subject Re: [ALL PLATFORMS] <icon> element support in config.xml
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 17:41:58 GMT
That seems reasonable, thanks for your input guys.

One more question that came up on the issue thread is, does the src attrib
need to be relative to the www? The concern here being that you will have
several megabytes of icon images in your application package that gets
used only for specific platforms, and only at compile time. I'm not sure
if there is some sort of convention we can come up with here to alleviate
this problem (perhaps in the context of using the CLI tools?).
