[GRASS-user] Lack of documentation on adding custom symbols

I think something along the lines of the following added to the wiki 
would be useful.

To see custom symbols in the GUI, you need to make a thumbnail image 
with ps.map and inkscape. See gui/symbols/README in the grass source 
code for a script to do that.

Put the resulting pngs in the same ./gui/images/symbols/ directory 

(That is basically the reply given in 2013 which solved my problem)
