I produce my own custom build of TortoiseSVN and these are the icons I use
for overlays. I don't think they are any better than anything you have
already, but maybe it will inspire some additional thinking, or maybe
someone will just like them.
One of the main things about my distribution is that it also includes
Subclipse and everything, like the JavaHL bindings is built so that it all
works well together. In other words, everything is built with VS. NET and
everything is installed in one location so there is just one set of files.
Anyway, I wanted the decorators to be consistent between Subclipse and
TortoiseSVN. In Eclipse, the decorators have to be fairly small, so
rather than try to shrink your decorators to work in Eclipse, I just used
the Eclipse decorators and made them bigger to use in TortoiseSVN. In
other words, I am using the Eclipse/Subclipse decorators as the
The Add and Delete decorators are just the ones from your "classic" set.
Subclipse did not have decorators for these items at the time. I have
since converted this Add icon to be used in Subclipse. It still doesn't
decorate Delete's differently.
InSubversion - this decorator is a "cylinder" like you might commonly see
to represent a "database".
Modified - this decorator looks like an asterisk, or what you would
typically see as a "dirty" flag in an editor.
Conflict - these are two red arrows. Although it looks a bit like a set
of lips. This one comes from Eclipse because they have a Synchronize view
with incoming and outgoing arrows. So when there is a conflict, you see
both arrows in red.
Anyway, these are far from perfect, but I think they work pretty well and
I have grown used to them. Feel free to do as you wish with them.
