Bug Description

"Summary of the week: - A number of major failures were identified in the export of design assets last week. A new release of all the assets has been assembled, and Paul is currently in the process of packaging. For those of you who need the assets now the complete set is available from https://chinstrap.canonical.com/~sabdfl/11_04/desktop_and_netbook/natty_graphics_export.tar.bz2 ."

In theory this is not a radical change but a re-fixing of what is already there. The above tarball is not immediately usable because although the icons themselves are right many of them have additional borders around the outside. Eg. the current picture for a 48x48px icon might be at the centre of a large 52x52px box. Additionally as a temporary measure all visual assets for Natty will be delivered in raster format. We hope to revert to some usage of vector formats in Natty +1

The current sizes will be documented from the current icons and then 'convert -crop ...' can be run over the .pngs.

Raw icons; all need re-cropping/naming/pointing at the right package.

This is proving extremely slow going as matching/cropping each asset up to what it should be is like searching for a needle in a haystack. The attached shell-script is what I've built up before.

Am I missing something, is there a existing list of mappings somewhere. Was/is there any rationale or logic behind the .png namings?

I looked through this too (both the drop, desired icon names & the script), there's no way to make it faster, sorry :/
