I don't have access to Illustrator, so if someone else can convert the .ai files to SVG i can help cleaning the results, breaking the icons in individual files etc.

I can start converting them to SVG. The reason I haven't thus far - if you convert a whole ai sheet to SVG, it croaks when you try to open it in Inkscape - I don't think through any fault of Inkscape, I think just because Illustrator isn't real swift at exporting SVG. Sigh. I'm probably going to have to break the sheets into chunks to get this to work - If anybody else has Illustrator and is willing to help let me know and we can divy them up.

Not only that, it should also support our specific file types.
A gallery would be awesome, for a large number of icons search functionality will become important. Also we may want some kind of feedback (comments).

Unfortunately, the choice is very restricted: people in charge of the website infrastructure have a policy - no php is allowed, python is the preferred language, so the large majority of gallery software is out of reach.

Yeh..... these limitations really suck. :-/

At the Open Clip Art Library we have the plan of using CreativeCommon's ccHost (http://wiki.creativecommons.org/CcHost), but we have to add SVG support before it can be used for the job. I think such a tool would be useful for Fedora Art, if not for icons at least for wallpapers.

Interesting, I will take a look!
