I wrote configuration for yoursway-create-dmg that creates DMG disk image for distributing MacVim in proper Mac way. Also created background image for it. However, I don't know how to properly integrate it to the build process of MacVim, but script itself is working well, as you can see – http://jirutka.cz/MacVim_7.3b64.dmg.
Added script for creating nice DMG installation image.
MacVim developers, please integrate it to the build process. I don't know how to do that properly.
MacVim logo that I used is from http://dribbble.com/shots/121306-MacVim-Replacement-Icon.
This is the latest version of that logo http://dribbble.com/shots/337065-MacVim-Icon-Updated
IMO, this logo is much nicer than the standard Vim logo. I hope there can be some way for you to include it in future versions of MacVim.

@necolas I found this updated version just after I’ve send commit with the old one and didn’t want to modify it again. However today I had some time on little boring lecture so there’s update. And also commit with replaced application icon with this new one.
You can see how it looks – http://jirutka.cz/MacVim_7.3b64_new_icon.dmg (legacy version for Snow Leopard) – or modify any other version yourself.
Thanks for the patch.
Having a dmg instead of an archive is nice and something I just never got around to investigating, so this might come in handy. Changing the icon is not an option however -- I have discussed why at length on the vim_mac mailing list, so please look at my reasoning there.
@b4winckler It’s pity, this new logo is really much nicer. Could it be at least on the background picture for DMG, or should I replace it with the original (ugly) one? In the first two patches is still original icon and new one is only in the background image, so if it would be okay, you can use it. Otherwise I will send new patch.
@necolas @jirutka it's a nice logo (besides the python code in the background) but I agree with @b4winckler it should not deviate from the vim logo.
If you want the new logo, create a shell-script that fetches the logo and installes in on top off the older one
@jirutka Can you apply same pull request for https://github.com/macvim-dev/macvim ?
