A lot more images had keywords and metadata this time around. I filled
in a bunch that had been submitted previously without keywords, using
(Niku's?) categorization. There's still a lot of images that don't have
this info, and still some dozes of metadata-less images that need to be
Basically, at this time we need volunteers to do the following tasks:
* Clear out files that made it into the release
+ Foreach file, see if a file by the same name exists in the 0.06
+ If so, delete it from the incoming/ dir.
+ Else, leave it
* Handle Wrong Format files:
+ Remove anything that lacks metadata info
+ Move packages of raster clipart to public_html/downloads/
+ Move examples of clipart usage to public_html/examples/
+ Delete simple renderings of existing clipart
+ For anything left, decide what to do on a case-by-case basis
* Handle Failed files:
+ If the file has no metadata and no way to determine its author,
move to public_html/rejected/
+ If more info is needed, send author an email to resubmit it with
metadata, and leave the image in place for now.
+ Otherwise, add the metadata and re-upload it to the site for
the next release.
Whatever doesn't get caught by the above three steps can be left there,
and we'll take care of them later.
An additional task is to go through the sodipodi-flags collection and
put SVG metadata into each of the images. I think this could be done
programmatically, so would be a good little scripting task for someone.

It'd be nice to try to get word out more widely for this release than
last time. We've got things better organized than before, and the tools
are working quite a bit better and should be fine with handling a large
We really need to attract a few more technical types to help with
improving the website and with processing the submitted clip art.
