Here in Erlangen I've made a small tree with NetBSD-Amiga relating material.

The conversion from texinfo to html is made by a small program I found with
archie, so it should be no problem to use texinfo for all docs. I think
there is a possibility to convert html-files to ascii - so the other way

when unzipping A4.texinfo.gz I get

zcat: A4.texinfo.gz: invalid compressed data--crc error
Exit 1
