Do the meta files that are stored on disk, contain the XML style sheet applied too? Or is it just the OSM data from the postgis database? I am looking at adding an additional path for retina support to my tile servers and was hoping that the same cache could be used. If so what commands do I need to add to rendered.conf to make sure they share the default style?

You cannot use the same cache. The meta tiles contain ready-made PNG images (64 of them per meta tile) and if you want double-resolution images you need a second cache directory. You can use the same database and the same style file for both normal and retina tiles, but not the same cache directory.

Thanks, I was confused by reading the docs if it was PNG data or raw OSM data.
