Program Rescue and History Project

Was wondering if there are any projects going on collecting source code from old Amiga (pre AGA...) programs, demos, cracktros, and games...Personally I think it would be nice to preserve them as a piece of history and allow others to see how programming was done...Would imagine that most programmers wouldn't mind (if they still have the sources) since nobody is making any money with those programs anymore (maybe some exceptions..?)

I am talking about commercial games and programs as well as semi-professional cracktros/demos release before 1992 or so (not exactly sure when the AGA chipset was introduced)...Especially interesting would be the source code of the operating system, Workbench, and basically any software (except for the tons of PD released on Fish Disks..etc since most of them came with source code also)...

Whoever has, simply can't for various reasons - sorry.
...but at least we can share our work.
