As the manager of the devientArt group, I would say that it's not a good
system for organising collaborative work with free culture licenses.
Everything about it would mean organising ourselves. Plus their indexing
is fairly unreliable. It good for a users community, but is immature
technically for the kinds of tools we need I think.

Ubuntu-owl is our ubuntu-learning-materials website, a small website for
the learning group to focus on and hang our coat. We had some
experimentation with ccHost and put some effort into making
art.ubuntu-owl.org, we wanted to see if it could be used to gather
together useful svgs for making learning materials, marketing and other
creative properties.
