I can also host a list at 3b2archive.org along with a Wordpress CMS and
git or svn repo. However I'm wondering if a Google Group or any other
platform tied to a source control system would be better. 

Also, Seth, did you get dumps of the NI card ROMs? If not, can anyone
who has an NI card please dump the ROMs.
