Thanks, moved the packages to Aminet (after some clean up) and updated the links in the above post accordingly.

Was 4.x written from scratch, or does it contain legacy code?
It's based on 3.1, plus all of the components from 3.5/3.9 they could get their hands on (Reaction, improved Workbench etc.).

What I wonder is, would it be possible for us collectively to do something like a Kickstarter with the goal of buying full rights to AmigaOS
Not going to happen. And there's an open source reimplementation already available, better use that as a basis.
