Great, how many images do you think you have saved? How can we prevent
these problems in future packaging processes? You are cool for
recovering these damaged submissions...I'm sure the submitters will be
happy to finally see their work.

Another thing I hope we can do is go through the UNSORTED folder and
categorize that clip art. There are so many submissions in there that
need to be resorted. We should develop a short-term strategy on how to
deal with those. Maybe though it would be better to work on the larger
infrastructure in order to empower developers/users more. Thoughts?
