Wow, finally someone who can really handle a brush and do some professional graphics work for TortoiseSVN. Wonderful!!

If you check out <http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/svn/tortoisesvn/trunk/src/Resources>, you will get a folder with all the overlays. "svg/Overlays" contains the svg overlay icons that Stefan has created. "Icons" contains the bitmap graphics. Most were painted "manually", the XPStyle set is generated from Stefans svg sources.

Wow, they look good! It would be interesting to see them in "list" or "report" mode, because these are the most critical views concerning icon size (and for me the most used).

No no, the graphics artist gets all the praise that he deserves. Even I have a note in the docs, because I created the initial icon sets :)

Our Icon license is here: <http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/svn/tortoisesvn/trunk/src/Resources/license.txt>. Maybe we should replace some occurences of "Subversion" with "version control".
