This is just what I was about to suggest, but Xod beat me to it!

Your page is an excellent resource Pam, and it should definitely
continue!  But as Xod suggests, a wiki format, perhaps with an index
of folios plus a link from each folio to a page of notes about that
folio, would be perfect.  Everyone could add notes, it would be like
a community "Commonplace Book" about the VMS.

If you'd like, I have a (seldom-used) wiki at
http://www.loomcom.com/wiki, or I'd be happy to help set up another
wiki someplace else.
