Rails 4 changes asset pipeline slightly so images in lib and vendor won't be precompiled. I don't know what's the point of this change but anyways...

For more info see: rails/rails#9317

@trisweb @thomas-mcdonald Are there any plans to fix this issue permanently?

From Rails upgrade guide,

In Rails 4.0, precompiling assets no longer automatically copies non-JS/CSS assets from vendor/assets and lib/assets. Rails application and engine developers should put these assets in app/assets or configure config.assets.precompile.

Is there any reason to not move the assets into app/assets as per the Rails team's recommendation?

I think we can modify config.assets from within the engine, but I haven't really delved into Rails engines before. I wouldn't have thought app/assets is the proper place for these to go.

Yeah I had the same thought too at first. You can see the explanation here.

It seems the basic idea is that they want to avoid any optional or "loose" files that are included in a gem to be precompiled along with the app automatically. Also, not autoloading lib and vendor is the standard behavior in a Rails app, so I guess it makes sense to mirror that behavior when precompiling.
