Very nice looking logos, although none of them really suggest "clipart"
to me. I like the play off of the CreativeCommons logo, that's a good
idea.  It might be preferable if the logo to use the term "Open Clip
Art" rather than the abbreviation OCAP, since the former will better
identify the project as providing clipart.

I made a brief project summary and fleshed out the FAQ a tad.  It'd be
nice if someone else could help fill in the rest of the FAQ or at least
suggest some questions for it.

It would definitely be better for us to find our own option.  

In doing a quick scan of Freshmeat, this one looked interesting... what
do you think?

Yes, also AbiWord, some of the larger presentation apps, and perhaps
some of the other SVG editors (Sketch, etc.)
