I am currently developing some tools which can be used either inside or outside galaxy and therefor are not hosted in the galaxy toolshed yet. Now I am working on the help section for the galaxy wrapper and wanted to include images as it says more than a thousand words. However according to the manual these images needs to be located in ./static/images?

This would then require after adding the module to galaxy to manually copy the files into the static environment.

Would it be possible to have the galaxyTool.xml file when pointing to an .. image:: be able to read the image from the tool section where the XML file is located in? This so I can easily keep the module up to date using git.

Unfortunately the tool is going to be installed in a location that is not served by the Galaxy server, so what you describe wouldn't work. It is an interesting idea though, so perhaps an API could be added to the tools API (in lib/galaxy/webapps/galaxy/api/ that allowed tools to expose a images/ directory (using @expose_api_anonymous_and_sessionless) directory. Perhaps raise this on the galaxy-dev mailing list if you want to explore the topic further.
