I've browsed your collection before; it's really impressive! But can you please explain why you would want the original disassemblies? These are community made things, not official sources, and they constantly get updated by dedicated members of the community — hence why they're on Subversion. You can get the older static archives at the wiki's Disassemblies
page if you're interested in preserving that (and nothing says you can't mirror the disassemblies on Subversion on your FTP). Furthermroe, a few of them are still in the format used by IDA Pro
, an advanced program for disassembling, and are right now not fit for being in a self-contained asm file (especially my Ristar disassembly, which has many bad cross-references and code blobs needing to go into subroutines).
Thanks for responding to my question and also providing me with information.

I think it's important when you have the original time stamps of files in a package. That goes for official and reverse engineered sources. Say, if you had one done in the year 2001. Even though it was fan made, some people would still be interested in knowing the development period. I don't have that for all of my files, but a lot of them do have the old time stamps.
Also, I wanted the original package because a good deal of the source is embedded on HTML files on this site.
Well, since you say they are being consistently updated; perhaps I will let these packages be for the time being. When I post a package I try to do so respectfully and get other's permission to do so. Which is another reason why I was asking about these disassemblies.
Thanks again for your answer.
