This reopens Bus #173050. I do know that icoutils also can do that task,
but I already have debianzed png2ico. I am not a debian Developer.
It's nice that you packaged png2ico. But, as long as it doesn't offer
features which are missing in icoutils, what's the added value of this
second tool? Don't you think uploading it would just increase the size
of debian without any advantage to the user?
png2ico can reduce colors while creating the ico file. From the man page:
"Using the parameter --colors you can specify the number of colors to
use for the images that follow --colors on the command line. Allowed
values are 2, 16 and 256. If omitted, 256 colors will be used. --colors
can be specified multiple times to store images with different numbers
of colors in the same icon file. If the source image has more than the
specified number of colors, color reduction will be performed."
If you think that is not enough, please tell me and I will close the bug.
