Sure, well, all this takes time and money now to get it developed.
Without time or money, things get done on the project, but in an
indeterminate amount of time. So, I love the ideas (keep em coming),
and please file them at http://launchpad.net/openclipart
Donations help as well!

>> Thanks for your post! What about making smaller packaged releases?
> Hi Jon,
>> The idea wasn't to abandon packages, but allow for people to "collect"
>> clipart, and then autogenerate packages.
>> The size of a package of all clipart was crushing our server resources.
> From what I see now you have access to the Oregaon State University
> Open Source Lab.
> The other way which you are saying can be done as well, it will
> require quite a bit of effort on the distributor's side (I'm talking
> about GNU/Linux distributors). While individuals may not have an issue
> as they could make a 'collection' and be happy with that, for
> distributors they might find it a bit difficult.
> As far as hosting or/and mirroring is concerned guess you could give a
> shout on the site and possibly you might get free or/and cheap hosting
> from people. I do see people talking about free space where they host
> their own stuff all the time. How reliable those hosting solutions are
> I never asked because I have never needed/wanted it.
> I have seen the 'collections' page but figuring it out will be hard as
> more content gets added to the 'collection' . For instance you have a
> 'clothes visualization' collection atm
> http://openclipart.org/collection/collection-detail/piskot85/6218 ,
> now if somebody gets motivated and makes couple of more or little more
> than, would they be part of this collection or a new collection ?
> If you want to go the collections way only, then would recommend have
> some kind of VCS so people can know what/which images were added to
> which collection ? Otherwise people would either not get some images
> from collection or possibly have duplicate images which would then
> need to go via a deduplication stage to make sure all the images are
> unique before they are added to the archive.
> In short, any way I see it, it would add a bit more complexity to the
> way things run now.
> At the end, its your baby so please do as you feel fit. Also there are
> certain assumptions and presumptions I have made, maybe you know some
> better way.
> Either way it would be nice to hear whichever way you decide to go ahead.
> Happy hacking.
