Description Tony Chang 2010-03-10 00:13:51 PST
We should have a grd file in WebKit/chromium/ for resources that live upstream.  This has a couple of advantages:

- If a resource we depend on upstream moves, whoever moves the file can fix the chromium build by updating the grd file.
- As part of the chromium DRT work, we need to be able to build webkit_resources.grd upstream.  The references to third_party files won't resolve upstream, so this allows us to get rid of the third_party references.

Patch coming with a small grd file.

The Chromium side patch that will start using this file is here:

I am open to suggestions on where to put the file (e.g., the WebKit/win port has a .rc file in WebKit/win/WebKit.vcproj/) and on what to name the grd file.  Right now they are all dev tool resources, but you could imagine us wanting to include other resources here (like the missing image png).

Based on offline discussion, I'm going to give this a more general filename so we can add other resources (not devtool related) to it in the future.
