Hi everyone,
With this development maybe its time to revisit considering putting the
clipart collection into something like Subversion and have the onsite
gallery and tarballs built from that Subversion repository?

While I understand the reasons earlier for wanting a more DMS like
system I am not sure the CC tool would be a better fit for us than the
Subversion repository. Something which demands a webfrontend for doing
updates is to much of a pain to use IMHO for doing this.

Subversion on the other hand would make updating and moving files around
much easier while keeping change history and 'blame' list.
