Are you serious? Jason is currently sweating his balls off trying to save at least a portion of a huge warehouse of unique documentation under an incredibly tight deadline. Does it really matter *where* the information is stored? IA? Bitsavers? What’s stopping someone mirroring what IA grabs and pitting it into bitsavers? Do you really think now is the time to whine about archival philosophy? Is there anyone involved in bitsavers grabbing stuff from that warehouse?
