Nice!

Any limits on what you do and do not want on there?

I've got a couple of old HotMix CDs, plus the first IndyZone CD which I'd be happy to rip at some point and upload. Also got SoftWindows 95 and IRIX 6.5.30 overlays as well.

No 6.5.30 for the time being. Foundations and 6.5.22 are risky enough :D

Everything else is fine, either image it up or tarball it up and put it in incoming as an anonymous user.

If it's possible upload/download all software, it's a great step for start preservating all historial software of this machines. Remember that the next generations will be possible that not have the knowledge to crack and rescue software from this machines. I think the actual community have the reponsability to preserve all possible software, manuals etc... for all unix retro systems.

This isn't the scope of the community as we talked on the discord, but I appreciate the input.

Hey RF,

Just in case it is of interest, I managed to find the "sgifonts.exe" that contains the more recent SGI redesign fonts.

I've stuck it in incoming, I leave it up to you if you wish to expose / include it on the FTP site.

sha256sum is 22075034e91aead0c78236f39e3b028c51116c262126cf27df78808de3d787b9, was MSSE checked + it's ok.

If interested I could also push a tarball with the fonts too (I've used them in Linux + inkscape to create some wallpapers).

Cheers,

Mr TS

For future reference:

Style guide for FTP uploads.

We accept three formats:

.tardist
.tar.gz
.tar

If libarchive makes it to irix eventually, I'll add tar.bz2/.xz but since they're not in the base system I don't want to add anything that requires nekoware.

We're mirroring tgcware too.

Please add .zip as standard for other stuff.
