Our plan is to put out an "update release" most months that includes
just the new or changed clipart since the last release; the last
two months we have not done this (the first time because of some
technical limitations, and the second time because I just forgot),
but I've written it into our release procedure so that hopefully
it will be done in the future.
CVS or a similar system is really not practical, however (for
reasons that have been discussed at length on the list already;
see the mailing list archives if you are curious), so for now
the update release would be a .zip or tarball each month with
just the new or updated clipart in it. Eventually we want to
move to a Document Management System that would be able to
handle this sort of thing rather better, but that is still
very much a work in progress.
