Any chance you could provide those 'ready to run' tape images back to
BitSavers, so other people don't have to replicate what you did?

Any chance you could write up some notes covering what your rememaber/did, for
anyone else who'd like to try running RSTS-11?

(I'd upload them to the Computer History wiki, if you like - I've, alas, not
had any luck getting in touch with the Webmaster there about getting other
people accounts...)

When did V7 come out, BTW?

And in looking around BitSavers a couple of days ago for RSTS-11 stuff, I
didn't think I found much in the way of sources, just the binaries. Did
I miss any?

It would be really nice to have sources - are they gone forever?
