Should I, Would I, Could I?
I've asked this several times already and no one has answered it yet. Can I
take those files<http://homepage.mac.com/WebObjects/FileSharing.woa/wa/default?user=johnny_automatic&templatefn=FileSharing27.html&xmlfn=TKDocument.27.xml&sitefn=RootSite.xml&aff=consumer&cty=US&lang=en>,
upload them, with original author attribution, and then cross them
off<http://openclipart.org/wiki/Authorlist>the list?

The authors themselves seem to have disappeared and this is one way I can be
useful. I've heard the "we should put them under Anonymous, rather than a
persons name", but that means it's an admin job - and what admin has time to
do all that?

I'm inclined to think that if the original authors want it under their
original name they should upload it themselves. The few people who have
responded to their stuff under Anonymous havent done anything themselves.
The important thing (and part of the Roadmap goals) is getting the clip-art
in in. Currently, I won't do anything until I get permission. I dont want to
be a hassle more than help, but the facts tell me that the original authors
aren't really interested in uploading themselves.

So, Can I?
