I'm seeding this URL to TUHS as one would expect them to be interested in
the work from Warren and friends. FWIW: I tried to browse their archives
and was not impressed (I couldn't find anything).

Don't diss them too badly. They are good folks,
especially with how they are dealing with archiving and deduping almost-identical
source trees.

They stop by CHM every few years.

As a quick look, I entered ‘unix’ to the search bar. 8^)

In the list was a UNIX_V6PP. A quick browse it looked like a (not very good IMO) c++ rewrite of the v6 kernel for the x86 processor.

Al, I'm not diss them or their efforts, just I wanted to know who they
were.
This is the first I had heard of them,  I am, however, dissing the web site
which I could not figure out how to use.

They seem to have scraped GitHub, so they backed up everything I put
there.  Thanks guys.

They are trying to archive and de-dup EVERYTHING that is open-source.

Unix is more difficult, because of the encumbrances.

I have surfed there over the years but I have always found their UI 
nothing short of terrible. They have archived over 126 million projects 
but my search queries return little and their browsing i/f seems 
non-existant.
