Create a Git/$whatever repository just for screenshots somewhere, and
make its contents available on the web, e.g. via static.kde.org /
screenshots.kde.org, etc.

>  * Shared screenshots between www and appstream

Have www embed screenshots from the xyz.kde.org server, instead of
keeping them with the other www-related files in SVN. This also allows
www to migrate to Git more easily, unless there are other large files
stored in there.

>  * Protected contents in www

Since people will only have access to the screenshots repo, www can
stay protected and writable only by a smaller group.
