Yeah, we need to strip our files down to the absolute minimum and be
compliant. We need to add some purification scripts...I'm lost actually
in where this is at and would *love* it if someone (nicu maybe ;) would
consolidate what info we have about this onto our wiki at an easy to use
link so that we can all combine our brain power on this (and hopefully
resolve once and for all :)

I totally want to get on this...I'm fixing some things on the main
website right because we have old pre-fd.o-move-to-a-server clipart_web
folder on the server...I need this to be able to cvs up our main
site...believe it or not :)
