I don't know about the History Center's software archives - I would
imagine they've got loads of tapes and packs, but no equipment nor
time to use them - but very shortly (as in the next week or two) there
will be a public archive available with TOPS-10 distribution tape images,
sources, build kits, etc. Total quantity of stuff (at the moment) is
in the few hundred megabyte range, and will likely grow a bit by
announcement time. Keep your ears peeled to alt.sys.pdp10 for details.

There will be about 200-300 Megabytes of PDP-10 (TOPS-10 and TOPS-20)
DECUS freeware, too.
