This is a common case.  If the original proprietary program (Photoshop) can't 
directly save to an open format, then the contributor should use another tool 
(the GIMP) to convert the file from a proprietary format (PSD) to the best 
open format possible (XCF).  It is the responsibility of the original 
contributor to make this conversion.  Consider it to be the price of using a 
proprietary program.
