OOo 2.x uses exactly the same system for the gallery as 1.x

We are building a collaborative area between the free graphic
applications at create.freedesktop.org.
We can try to get this location defined as a first project under
At this moment the two major users of OCAL images are (my guess)
Inkscape and Scribus, and their developers are in close relationship, so
I would expect a standard to be easily reached. If we can add GIMP in
the mix, all major graphic application in Open Source will be covered
and it will become a "de facto" standard.
