There is a Bugzilla set up on freedesktop.org, that appears to be the
new place for requesting admin help. Has been working ok so far.

This works for me; I have been increasingly tied up with Inkscape
development of late, so would appreciate sharing this duty. We're
talking about pumping out another Inkscape release in a few weeks, so
I'm going to be particularly tied up with that in the near term.
The process of making the tarball is pretty straightforward, although I
think it could be improved on. Here is my 'cheat sheet' for doing a
1. Determine the previous number, old_rel_num
2. new_rel_number = old_rel_num + 0.01
3. Get the previous openclipart package
4. Copy openclipart-$old_rel_nu openclipart-$new_rel_num
5. Rsync down the incoming directory
rsync --delete -av -e ssh \
$ svg_validate --debug=2 ocal_incoming_$new_rel_num &> LOG
7. cp -rf default-0.00/* openclipart-$new_rel_num
mv LOG openclipart-$new_rel_num/LOG.txt
rm -rf default-0.00
8. Review directory
9. scp $distname.tgz
10. Update clipart download and index pages & deploy updated pages
11. Remove the old incoming directory
12. Send out email notices to clipart at freedesktop.org
inkscape-user at lists.sf.net., inkscape-devel at lists.sf.net, and more
Jonadab, would you be willing to take the lead on this release?

Yes, this'd be a good way to assure ourselves that things are put back
Meanwhile, over the next month or two, I will try to recruit some
additional teammembers. I think we're about two perl/php coders short.
6-person teams seem to be a lot more robust, and I think it'd be fun to
have a couple new participants.
