ok, i analyzed your files using svg_validate (AFAIK, this is the script 
used for releases):

the correct name is pizza-slice.svg

i receive this error:
Can't use string ("
food, pizza
         ") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at 
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/SVG/Metadata.pm line 310.

but i have an old version on SVG::Metadata in my computer

if the file has not valid metadata, then the bug is in upload_svg.cgi, 
which accepted it (file uploaded on 7 september)

all those 3 pictures does not have any metadata. this is understandable, 
because all of them were uploaded at the beginning of june

this looks to me like a perfectly valid one

this is why i say we should display somewhere the list with failed 
files, in order to give the authors the chance to review and correct 
possible problems

i don't know what you mean by this, i receive your messages from the list

PS: i don't think the large-computer.svg is OK, it may be drawn from 
scratch, but it imitates perfectly the original
