That doesn't answer the problem of things that were kept out of main by patents, rather than crypto. I suppose we could start by assembling a non-US archive outside the states, then look at it once assembled to see if it could be moved with a bulk notification -- does anyone know where all the old non-US is still availavle? I have some bits around on CD, but I doubt I have all of it. If we're going to archive old stuff (and I think we probably should) then it seems a shame to have an archived copy that is missing bits (ssh comes to mind as a reasonably important missing piece, but then I was the maintainer at the time, so maybe that's just personal ;-) Cheers, Phil.
