[vox] Open Clip Art Library 2.0 released



Seen on OCAL's "clipart" mailing list [some administrative comments snipped].

Here's a snippet from one of the many news articles about the release
(see links in the fwd, below):

  Would you like some Libre content to go with those free and open
  source applications? One of the initial challenges that the open
  source community has had in supplanting proprietary solutions is not
  just the software itself, but the entire ecosystem that has built up
  around proprietary software. Case in point: While you can find
  top-notch free and open source tools to create artful documents,
  finding clip art and templates that are free is a much bigger
  challenge.

  Luckily for FLOSS enthusiasts everywhere, projects like the
  Open Clip Art Library (OCAL) [ http://www.openclipart.org/ ]
  are stepping up to fill the gap.

Enjoy!

We need to convince people to help edit our wikipedia entry:

We already have loads of our art on wikimedia commons:
