[DONE]Delete .sass-cache directories from bunsen-themes gtk3?

I just noticed - while trying to make a CD-sized iso - that bunsen-themes is a big package at ~70MB. Surprising, since themes are mostly text files and tiny images. Looking inside, I found each theme has a gtk-3.0/.sass-cache directory which seems to be taking up most of the space.

A cache doesn't sound essential, and a bit of Googling suggested this data speeds up the recompiling of gtk3 themes after config changes. General users won't be doing that so often I guess. How about deleting all those .sass-cache directories? It would reduce the package size dramatically. Any hidden gotchas?

Nope, killing the cache is fine for pre-compiled themes. E.g. for arc-theme when you user make install it just ignores the .sass-cache.

Base users 1) generally don't recompile the theme; 2) cannot recompile without adding package ruby-sass; and 3) get the cache recreated from the sources if not present.

Just kruft for the vast majority. Delete? Please and thank you.

Correct (*can get the cache...) and agreed, just keep the sass files on GitHub. Delete is seconded, please and thank you. smile
