i've done this for xbmc-adult on the unofficial repos page as an example.
no one really needs the icons when browsing the wiki page (especially that small), its only in xbmc that it is of any use.
also its a lot of work uploading every image to the wiki.
I was just adding the column and placed the image just because, I don't care what's displayed in the wiki, image, link or whatever. The best option for me would be nothing, make a column that's hidden, but don't know if possible and if it could be fetched by the add-on.
Most images are not available in the Repos SVN/Git, only via download, name/path and other variables of external links could change also, so I think uploading them to the wiki is by far more safe plus heterogeneous, avoiding any other thing that could go wrong.

That the reason why I am wondering which WIndowXML is used in the skin in order to create the Window for displaying info about a repo, my guess is I can almost reuse it as it is and I would have to do it only for the main skins.
That will come probably later on when I will have more time, I didn't do WindowXML for a while :o.
I think I get what you mean with winowxml and the reference of jmarshall to "doable as a script module", something like what cdscript use https://github.com/Giftie/script.cdartma...ns/Default or NextAired http://code.google.com/p/passion-xbmc/so...253Dclosed use.
Anyway I must say I prefer a solution were you just provide the info assigned to a infolabel and the skin use it, like Advance Launcher does. Providing the info with infolabels available for addons, like ListItem.Property(Addon.XXXX), will make the "Repositories Installer Add-on" compatible with any skin from the go without interfering with the look of the same. For me that's by far, much better solution that having a "default" skin for the addon (or script) like the ones Next and CdArt use, that end being ugly things that almost never suit any skin.
Hope I made myself more clear this time and that I finally understand what you mean with windowxml.
