Hi Tobias,

Thanks for responding.

Well... I did this website because I wanted to be able to search the 
library, then I thought why not share it - then I figured out that parts 
can be used in openclipart. There's a bunch of code that can be reused 
again in openclipart, and we can do that. However, there will be always 
those ideas that I really want to do - but others won't agree with me to 
put it back in openclipart !

So I think I need first to communicate with the dev side, so being on 
the mailing list is a good step. I believe that openclipart needs on the 
dev side:
- A bug/feature list. Either bugzilla, mantis or may be we can use one 
on sf.net
- Planned goals for every release.
- The goals/features needs to be distributed on people
- Use openproj or some thing similar to track progress.

The only thing I found was the wiki page, and it helped me to see that 
there are features that I can provide back to the project. So if this 
gets expanded, it will help the project as well as encourage others who 
want (or think) to contribute.

If we don't have those, I can set them up - I just don't want to double 
work, or do some thing that's already there.
