Does anybody know what the current situation is with CC-0 licensed #clipart websites?

https://openclipart.org seems to be back, is it still the old openclipart or has it been taken over by somebody else?

What about the two mirrors I know of that appeared when openclipart died? are they the recommended ones? https://freesvg.org/ and https://permaclipart.org/ ? is there something else?

Has anybody started a huge git repository of clipart that is shared via sneakernet by meeting graphic designers in car parks and other similar shady places? :D

(I'm looking for places to upload things to)

(boosts welcome)

i think the original openclipart.org website is supposed to stay around for a while, now that it’s been relaunched and has been reintegrated into Inkscape.
Some info about its history on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openclipart?wprov=sfti1
If anybody is wondering, the reason why I'm asking is that I've suddenly discovered a need of which I was hitherto unaware for this:

airmail sticker, except with the text "par hibou" and an owl drawing

(this toot will break in a month or so, but by that time I will have uploaded the sticker somewhere.)
great, that toot is already broken :D

anyway, I've uploaded the svg on openclipart: https://openclipart.org/detail/338774/par-hibou#

and this is their png preview

Bevilacqua Gustavino reshared this.

The Openclipart.org site has been solid since relaunch, from what I can tell.

It is constructed differently from before (new software system?), but the main functions have been recreated.

While the mirrors were created, I don't know if they are "competitors" in the sense of attracting new clips not found on #OCAL

Is your Owl Mail a reference to Harry Potter?
@Algot to the harry potter fanfictions, mostly, but yes
That's cool.

I did enjoy reading the first few Harry Potter books when they came our, but had not remembered owl mail.

Keep the images coming!
