Yes.  I plan to devote most of the weekend to working on getting this
out, but am not going to be slipping the date.  

I notice that a lot more items have metadata than last release, which is
great, but there's still quite a few that lack it.  I'll try to generate
a report as soon as I can about it.

Agreed.  Tool-wise we're in a position to be able to handle metadata
much better than last release, so we should push this forward.  Anyone
can help with this, it's mainly just tracking down who submitted what,
and running svg_annotate on it, then re-uploading.

I'm planning on focusing on this after 0.03, because the tools are not
currently in a position to be able to handle categories, and I'd rather
focus the time on the more core capabilities of processing the
metadata and getting as many images in as I can.

I've thought about this myself.  And I agree it is something we can
discuss later.  I notice we already have a few dolphin images...
