A small group of volunteers are working on restoring JOSS-II, the PDP-6
version, to a working state.  We are typing in a program listing
provided by the RAND corporation.  The listing is the supervisor, which
is a large part of the system.  So far good news.

The bad news is that it's not a complete system.  The Computer History
Museum seems to have additional program listings here:

But they have not been scanned.  They archvists are willing to let us
see the collection, but no one of us lives near the museum.  Is there
anyone interested in this kind of thing that are willing to help out?
