Cool, thanks. Can you also do chmod -R g+w on all of these?

Hmm... I thought the script would take .svgz files. We should
investigate that - svgz should be an acceptable (perhaps even preferred)
file format. Bug me if this remains an issue.
I think the SVG file issue should be good now. It'd be nice if the
upload tool would force this to be lower case, though. Certainly other
tools may get mixed up by it.

Yeah... I'm having the same problem. Rejon, if you're reading this
could you follow-up and figure out how we can take care of this?
I know we could probably write a cgi script that'd get the right
permissions, but it'd probably be easier to get an admin to do a
`chmod -R g+w` across everything in public_html for us.

*Nod* Agreed, I think you are right.

As long as they have some metadata and are legitimately PD, I'd have no
problem keeping them. Perhaps we can post them as separate packages
from the main files? Since I don't have much interest in non-SVG files,
it would be keen if someone else would take ownership of these types of
files and shepherd them through. I'll get to them eventually if no-one
else wants to do it, but it may be a while.
