I've emailed Jonathan Leighton about him implementing the same system
for OCAL, as well. Jonathan, would you be willing to do a similar
conversion for ocal. The underlying html is the same for news as
Inkscape, so it should be a no-brainer.

Ok...sounds good. planet.openclipart.org sounds good to me.

Make it inline with our webpage.

Agree...I have been planning to do this as well.

Yes, I agree....

Agree...The only thing is that I have been wanting to develop an
organization/planet site for the creative community that would help bind
all these projects together. Maybe a good first step is to make a planet
site for openclipart.org, and then once that is successful make a larger
planetcreative.org or something on freedesktop.org. The more we can
share what we are all working on together, I think the better.
I think planet.openclipart.org should focus mostly on the developers
working on openclipart.org and the closely related projects, like
Inkscape and OpenOffice.
