The repositories can certainly be mirrored, I was thinking mostly about the need to get permission to the ASJ articles. Permission from aD, the author, or both? They solicited articles from non-aDers so I think the issue might really be one of asking the authors if they'd mind our placing copies here. Those written by aD staffers may require aD permission instead.
In general I think Jerry's summary is very good and IMO folks could move forward based on it. The question of who to approach at aD was one that entered my mind, too. I don't even know who's left in management that would understand the reason for such a request. I'm not saying that no one would, just that the "stealth layoff" of over 40% of staff leaves me with very little idea of who is left.
Jerry - do you want to take the initiative on this?
