Skin artwork addons - what do we need?
#1
Hey all,

I've started doing some work on skin artwork addons. Currently I'm thinking really simply:

1. A single type of addon (xbmc.gui.skinart).
2. Basically dump the files in media/ in folders as necessary.
3. folders flag in addons.xml to say the addon contains folders of art rather than single images.

To make sure we get it right, I need to know what type of skinart addons you think are appropriate and/or what they will provide. Obvious ones:

1. Weather Fanart - there's currently one "definitive" weather fanart pack I think? This supplies directories of images.

2. Studio logos - again, I think there's currently one "definitive" pack. I'm not sure if we need some sort of studioname -> studioimage map file or not - eg are all studio names valid filenames?

3. Background packs - this is a tricky one at least until we have some sort of universal background selector in XBMC itself, which IMO should wait until we've figured out how to do the "universal homepage setup" thing.

Any others? What happens if there's more than one weather fanart pack made available and the user has both installed? What about two studio logo packs? What other artwork packs do we need that don't depend on a particular skin?

Cheers,
Jonathan
