Description (last modified by Otto42)

This tickets relates to https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/17493 about showing examples of blocks in the Block Library Preview. These block previews contain images that need to be hosted somewhere.

What we've tried:

  1. Base64 encoding the images was too large.
  2. Linking to external sources that were out of our control, like wikipedia, was a concern.

Neither of those options worked, so it's opted to host these images on w.org. Included is a zip of some public domain images pulled from wikipedia. Can we get these added to the w.org CDN for this purpose before WP 5.3 RC1? Thanks!
