Well, first thing is to get a wiki username, which is at the bottom of
any freedesktop.org page. The link is called "Register." Or, you can go
here to do the same http://freedesktop.org/TWiki/TWikiRegistration.
After that, you will have a username, etc. Mail that to me or another
registered wiki user. I can do it.

Yeah, IMO, the WIKI is the best for collections of notes and shared
goals. Forums might be good for a much larger scale project, but for us,
for now, the wiki will hopefully suffice.

I'm starting to lean towards www.openclipart.org. Maybe we should go
ahead and get this name. Bryce, how did we get inkscape.org? Ted, could
you check out how to get this to point to our webspace. I think the wiki
should stay at: http://freedesktop.org/Software/clipart and the website
should be: http://clipart.freedesktop.org. Then, whatever name we go
with should be an alias to http://clipart.freedesktop.org.

The reason I'm getting into the openclipart.org name is because of
OO.o's support into this project. I think that is undeniable in trying
to consolidate some efforts, publicity and users.

do I do this? I'm starting a page on openofficeIntegration on the
