I have compiled the entire library of Wikipedia's images and have a 
bittorrent server ready to export this library on the internet.  I am 
word back from the Foundation for approval to enable the torrents. 

I have developed an automated C based server system which mirrors all 
Wikipedia images and compiles them into .bz2 archives as a library based 
on XML revision and dump.   When I get final approval, I will export 
these torrents to allow the images to be available from the internet.   
I will be in Arizona meeting with Dine (Navajo) folks next week on their 
projects, but will have email access. 

The torrents will be available at


At some point.  I will let folks know when and if the Foundation has 
approved this.
