[Clipart] how to create new openclipart releases?

This is pretty cool! Once I read this, I thought, yeah, why not just
make releases like this! We always were so held up on the cleanest
files, etc, but making new packages helped generate loads of traffic
in the past, so lets get on getting these out!

I updated the release procedure with your raw procedure, but I
remember now that I made a whole package for doing packages which we
should use to make packages


Here is the SVN module with the packager scripts I built, but we never
really got to use. This automatically creates tarball, zip, 7zip, and
windows installer if nsis installed. Test that out...I documented on
the procedure above.

Can you help push this forward? Lets launch a package out today! :)

I'm in #openclipart too on irc.freenode.net for all the hacking!

The packager is the best way to proceed. There are other things needed
to really get this nice and pretty, like I think more benficial to add
the metadata to the files, make package of the top clip art since the
size of the package is getting a bit unruly now ;)

What do you and others think?
