It's great but it seems that you use package that it's few years old,
the last one (which is snapshot on osuosl server
download.openclipart.org) have more then 700MB and it's 2 year old. So I
assume that when we get back packages, (We want to pack them every month
they will be openclipart-svg.<YEAR>.<MONTH>.tar.gz) it will have more
the 1GB of data, when compress.

We will also sync our database data with svg metadata (like tags title
and description) and maybe we will be able to fix their names. Some of
them are digits (I will now talking bad about Aiki here) We can recreate
names based on titles.

So they will be searchable, using Unix tools like grep and find or will
allow to create scripts that will parse svg matadata.

We can also sort them by tags and create symlinks (they will not be
recreated on windows) like

real files:


old packages is just dump of the folder.
