How to submit your own PLicons to the team

NOTE : THIS PART IS BEING IMPLEMENTED AT THE TIME AND IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

If you have a really nice set of picons of your own, and your want to share it with us in our repository then do the following.

The package you have to deliver is a tar.gz file with the following contents :
--In the root of the tgz there is a file called picons.xref
--In the root of the tgz there is a directory called picons which contains the images.


The picons.xref is built up as follows in where empty lines and lines starting with # are discarded :
# Filename [ NameSpace (Sat position) , SID (Service ID), TSID (transponder ID) , ONID (Network ID) ]

Example :
somepicture.jpg [ 78.5E , 10 , 1 ,1 ]
someotherpicture.jpg [ 77.8W , 10 , 1250 , 64 ]
