That's good to know for a start. I just wouldn't want them to get lost
somehow :-).

At least for the webspace. With the Wiki and the API docs, I already
managed to exceed it when updating stuff and leaving a backup lying
around. They might not have any limitations for SVN in place.

Wouldn't want to open up yet another project somewhere for Adonthell
:-). Savannah would be fine for hosting a repository, if that's the
place where those gfx should go. And it looks like there might even be
a way to keep them in git, but separate from the code. See my last
mail about git.

However, it would probably also make sense to keep processed gfx and
originals separate as well, especially as the resolution of originals
might be much larger than those that end up in the game.
