Cool, what are you interested in working on, on the technical side?  

In the immediate near term we need a lot of the really basic
infrastructure stuff like a website, some means for folks to upload
clipart packages, etc.

We also need to figure out how clipart packages should be packaged.
We've roughed out some ideas already, and it doesn't sound like it'll be
complicated, probably just a tarball with a metadata file in it, but we
need to make an example for folks to copy for new packages.  Maybe we
should start by looking at how the flags clipart is packaged?  Or maybe
there already is a clipart packaging scheme that some program uses, that
we could reuse?
