Becoming a librarian? Count me in!
I would gladly review new clipart and put tags,
I could also generate png thumbnails where they're missing,
or re-arrange files where there _are_ png but not-on-top.
I would less happily clean-up images, but if it means only fixing boundaries
then it's OK;
please explain what is needed.
And what about this Style-Guidelines thing that Freedo put on the Wiki?
Will we use it or it's just an idea that didn't catch?
