Allowable uploads?
« on: March 08, 2021, 03:39:23 pm »

Hi Folks,

Apologies if this is stated somewhere:

What is the policy regarding uploads of Lisa ROM images and/or ROM source code?

The essence of these uploads is already available in some form at Bitsavers (binary images and/or source); my uploads would differ in patches (binary and source) and some disassembly listings.

If not acceptable here, suggestions for durable alternates would be appreciated. (Aside from Bitsavers.org, where I presume there is a substantial delay time between submission and availability.)

Cheers,

James

I don't know the local policy, but if it's helpful, I've found GitHub to be an accommodating host for my weekend warrior reverse-engineering, and archive.org hosts a lot of ROM images (and seem quite dedicated to durability!).

GitHub seems appropriate (not 100% convinced about long-term durability, but close).

However, it also seems devilishly complicated for someone who just wants to post some stuff and isn't experienced with version control. I'll go through the guides and see if I get anywhere.

Thanks,
James

edit: as one would expect, the terms of service of Archive.org and GitHub preclude posting something potentially copyright infringing. I think that leaves LisaList2 and BitSavers as the durable repositories. I'll post the stuff here.

James,
Please post anything you think is important.

The forum was created as a long-term repository for Lisa related information.  LisaList2.com is not beholding to a large organization such as Google or GitHub specifically so we ( Lisa enthusiasts ) will always have control over its fate and availability.    I will make every effort to insure this information is available for a long time to come.

Thank you,
Rick
