Hi Lads

I subscribe to the list digests, so excuse me if this has already gone around the list. 

According to the the SGI Developer newsletter:


Announcing Developer Access to IRIX. Maintenance Release Downloads

Current members of the SGI Global Developer Program are now entitled to
download IRIX maintenance releases, for use on their development systems

Entitlement means using a specific Supportfolio User ID and password
that will provide access to downloads. This special entitlement is
linked to the primary contact.

To use this entitlement, the primary contact for your membership will
first need to register on Supportfolio to establish the entitled User ID

for a free Supportfolio ID.
2. Enter contact information.
3. A message will display saying: "You have successfully created your
Supportfolio account and registered with SGI."
4. The temporary passwordwill be emailed back to the supplied email
We recommend the primary contact log in and establish a permanent
password and then provide the entitled userid and password to the
appropriate personnel on the development team.
