Re: [PATCH] better GUI and buttons


good morning.

The patch I submitted does not contain the re-built PNGs after some
.svg were modified by my, I thought this is what I was supposed to do
and that is why it is necessary to rebuild the PNGs. If you prefer in
attachment you can find the same patch for which it is not necessary
to rebuild the PNG. The patch is however 6.5MB. This I immagine is the
consecuence of considering PNGs as part of the code.

I am changing the .svg so I guess that makes me a :PNG maintainer"

I hope this will help to clear up the misunderstand. If not, please
advise what to do.
