That was the reason why I didn't move it immediately to the new directory.
OK, now there is schematics/cartridges/userport and symbolic links from
cartridges/vic20 and cartridges/c64 pointing there.  There are also new
symbolic links in the schematics/computers hierarchy: drives (disk drive
schematics), cartridges (for the VIC-20 and C64 for now) and firmware.

Hmm, how many spam filters got affected by the subject?  I'm looking for
volunteers for two tasks:

- OCRing a German article about the 264 (I have the scanned files.  You
  will probably have to type the text manually.  It's not much, but my
  time is extremely limited.)
- sorting the stuff in /pub/cbm/incoming/c64 (preferably create a Unix
  shell script that I can run on ftp.funet.fi to move the files to correct
  directories and to update the 00INDEX files in those directories, e.g.

	mv sound-editor-program.prg $BASE/audio/editors
	mv another-editor.prg $BASE/audio/editors
	cat >> $BASE/audio/editors << EOF
	  A sound editor...
	  Another sound editor

Well, it doesn't need to be a shell script; you can also do something like
a list:
	sound-editor-program.prg => audio/editors
	  A sound editor

That'll also do fine.  Also, I think that I will need to repackage some of
the software (i.e. single files packed in disk images, or t64 files or
whatever there might be in that directory).

There also is lots of unsorted plus/4 and c128 stuff that I have planned
to handle for several months (maybe for two years) now.  Is there anybody
with unlimited spare time?  I wouldn't like to have any unsorted and
probably non-working stuff on the server.
