Oh, server capacity is nice...we need to come up with mirror strategy

Also, the packaging is in cvs as module clipart_package. There is a
makefile for wrapping up our collection as various packages including
the windows nsis-based installer.

There are a couple of patches for that in our bug tracker that need to
be applied...that would be a good thing to take over if you feel
comfortable with it...we could immediately snap shot our old and new
clipart and put it into the PACKAGE/clipart folder and test out a
release. This is a pretty cheap way to do a 0.19, but the clipart isn't
cleaned up, not into hierarchical folder.

One option is to just use the clipart packaged up as I emailed out a few
days ago, and just put all new clipart into the unsorted folder.

The problem with this though is that our removals are not in this new
package...so problematic...best to put energy into a cchost-based
strategy IMO. Would you like help with getting started on this?
