Hello all, here is an update about openclipart.org. It appears that
openclipart.org still does not redirect properly to the fd.o site, but maybe
it takes a little while for this change to propagate.

I tried not to be inflammatory to sitewranglers or Daniel Stone, but maybe my
frustration came across a bit too much in the email (as you can see he responded).

/srv/clipart.freedesktop.org; your webroot is ./www.

It hasn't been.  It's in /home/compromised/clipart,
or /home/compromised/projects/clipart.  Since they'll need to be changed
for the new location, it's up to you guys to cherrypick what you want it
and drop it in your shared space in /srv/clipart.freedesktop.org.

It's back up now.

It's up now, but I'll note for the record that if I was feeling a slight
more bitter and annoyed than I was when I opened this mail (which was
quite a bit), my response to such an ultimatum would probably have been
'then do so'.

Daniel, noting with just a tinge of annoyance the culture of bashing
