This is something that I wanted to do for a long time, but now I finally gathered resources to attempt it. It is a Git repository with reconstructed history of fasm's source code, going back to unreleased versions developed back in 1999 for private use.

You can find it at: https://github.com/tgrysztar/fasm

In several places there are jumps skipping some version numbers - not all snapshots have been preserved in my archives. Also, I did not include 1.67.x and 1.69.x lines, as they have also been only partially preserved. Nonetheless, I believe all the important milestones are present.

Can you explain how you did this (in a few words?), I've been wanting to do this with my hitchhiking data processing software which goes back to TP 3.01a and 1994, and I've got about 250 RAR archives with sources.

If you're familiar with Git (even at a basic level), the process is pretty straightforward. You need to be able to provide metadata like date/time and description (for example version number) for each archived snapshot - but if you can automate extraction of such information from the archives, you should be able to make a script that would do it all. In my case I had to do some of the things manually, as the quality of the snapshots varied.

Why gitlab? Both are privately held.

Why not put it on flatassembler.net?

gitlab is hostile to noscript/light/small web browsers (lynx/links2/w3m/edbrowse/dillo/netsurf/etc)

I did contact them to ask them, I got a polite finger, and they explicitely added that they will not support small web browsers in their faq (like gogol ytube).

It is _extremely_ annoying because freedesktop.org did choose to move from github to gitlab: until now, github core features do work on small web browsers.
