Yeah, that seems reasonable. We have lots of goals, but I think the best goal to 
have is to see that our amount of clip art keeps increasing. Obviously we need 
tools to manage a growing infrastructure, but as long as there is people 
submitting, then I think we are doing pretty good.

BTW, what is everyone working on this month? How is everyone too? I hope 
everybody is doing well...since we communicate mainly on mailing list, its hard 
to for me to gauge how everybody is doing, how they feel about progress, and how 
our developers personal lives are going...anyhow...best wishes in the new year. :)
