Great idea!

This project would also be a place to collect tutorials on how to create and modify icons. Every now and then I need a new icon or to modify an existing one, and I always have the feeling I am reinventing the wheel.

Question: would it make sense to create a project for a set of vector icons like Font Awesome <http://fontawesome.io/> or Fondation Icon Fonts <http://zurb.com/playground/foundation-icon-fonts-3>, that any project/package/plugin could use, and of course, improve?

It could of course include accessibility and general purpose icons. It would be a good companion to the Polarsys Font <https://www.polarsys.org/proposals/b612-polarsys-font>.

Also, if the icons are done by a project team, with style guidelines, it would help to have consistent icons, in Eclipse, in general.

    Hi,

    the buildship project contact me about how to provide HDPI icons for
    there project. As I assume many projects have this question, I post
    here the related info.

    The general support in Platform is explained here:
    https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.6/platform_isv.php#high-dpi-icons
    <https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.6/platform_isv.php#high-dpi-icons>

    Platform has also a Maven based command line tool to renderer png in
    different sizes from svg images. See
    
http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/Eclipse4Notes/article.html#providing_hdpi_icons
    
<http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/Eclipse4Notes/article.html#providing_hdpi_icons>
    for some info for that.

    Best regards, Lars
