The other problem with FTP for this sort of thing is that it often
interacts badly with NAT and firewalling (at both ends of the
connection). My preference for distributing large trees of files is
rsync, since it's designed for that, and it lets you efficiently
update an existing local copy with as little data transferred as
possible -- which is great for things like Bitsavers that are
constantly being added to.
I would imagine a collection of old databooks would be of interest to
people in the vintage radio/TV communities as well, so it certainly
sounds like a worthwhile project to me. "Voltsavers", perhaps?
