Why is there over 6,000 lines of commented out css in app.css
Wouldn't it better to have a page in the docs under css (or scss) about polka dotted backgrounds at what-not.
Reason I say this is because my system wanted to crash with every little change I tried to make in the app.css file.
I realize when you publish an app that it compresses the css, but 6k lines of commented out stuff just seems silly.

You shouldn't edit app.css manually, you should change SASS and compile it.

Which brings me to my question, despite the compiling of SASS, why add in 6k of lines in the app. Obviously you want a developer to go into the app and see those examples, like polka-dotted backgrounds.. and what I am saying is that whole file caused my computer to lockup a number of times.
So whether or not I "alter" that file or look in it to see the examples, its still way to big.

With compass in the config.rb you could have this to not have comments and make it as small as possible:
output_style = :compressed
environment = :production
Compass is used to easily theme.

I have that in my config.rb, but since I am a newb at sencha touch, the only way I know how to compile the css is with this DOS command:
sencha app build production
is there a way to compile sass without that command? Or does that command limit me in going back to alter files then compiling again?
Sorry for the 'basic' questions... I wish I had the $3,500 for the upcoming 5 day class in San Francisco!

if you cd into resources/sass/ then you can execute the compass compile command there
