Pop onto the freedesktop IRC channel and try to catch daniel.  See if
you can get a dump of the /project/clipart tree, for backup and so we
can seek an alternate provider.  Also ask for an ETA on when it'll be
back up.

If you don't get a good answer, or if the ETA is too long or uncertain,
I've got a spare SF project 'crucible' (its a project that got killed by
management at OSDL).  I've added you as an admin of this project.  You
can log into shell.sf.net and copy the website & etc. onto it.  You can
point DNS at it, and use the VHOST admin tool to get the virtual host
set right:


Hopefully that'll be enough to get you through the presentation.

If you don't get a snapshot, I've got a copy of CVS in case you don't,
however it's not very up to date.  

Good luck, let me know how it goes and if you need more help.
