Should I upload my KIXX XL versions of games?

Before mine are sold on ebay, would anyone want me to upload any of my KIXX XL versions of these?

Monkey Island 1 and 2
Space Quest 1, 2, 3 and 4
King's Quest 5

These don't seem to be available in TOSEC. The KIXX versions generally (always?) have the copy protections removed, but often have a little advert about other KIXX titles when booting.
I imagine the lack of copy protection might make a WHDLoad (etc) developer's job easier.

It will take a while to rip all the disks - my question is, would it be a worthwhile contribution and should I bother?
A further question: when creating the ADFs... gzip or zip compression?

I know Monkey Island 2 KIXX has been uploaded but not sure about the others I like them because they dont have the protection like you say and others might just for preservation

I dont konw if an IPF or adf exist of these releases - Maybe dlfrsilver or some other knowledgeable person might know?

That's good, saves me doing 11 disks! I think I'll at least do Monkey Island 1 for now since I've seen a (very old) post requesting the KIXX version.
It seems that it's already in the latest TOSEC. Oh well. Maybe the others if I can be bothered.

You can always see what IPF has been imaged via http://softpres.org/games .

I took a look and it doesn't seem that those games have been imaged to IPFs.
