On top of that, I hope we will restart releasing often and the next 
release (0.20) is not far away.

So don't wait, upload as soon as you have images ready, they will be 
available in the website and the daily tarballs, up for the end-users to 
grab and hopefully not after a long time in the next packaged release.

We used to have such a feature in the old website and is missed: 
basically you had to fill somehow the metadata in the SVG files (either 
with Inkscape's dialog or from command line in batch mode), make a 
archive (zip, tarball) and upload that.
I think the lack of this feature is what had kept us away from importing 
all the images from the old site (at least it delayed *my* effort in 
doing so for over a year).
