While I appreciate your work, I strongly recommend that for arcade game preservation (and its scope is growing), you correspond, communicate, and coordinate directly with "The Dumping Union" so as not to duplicate work, not conflict and compete in bidding wars all towards the same goals, etc.





While I agree with this on principle, there's still a lot of work to be done for MAME with verifying dumps, redoing bad dumps and filling out incomplete dumps with bipolar PROMs and such.

(On a related note, the Undumped Wiki includes a "Bad dump" category page, but since it's automatically generated from MAME's -listroms output and was last updated well over a year ago, I consider it more or less useless.)

Hardware preservationists could probably also use some sort of comprehensive guide to dumping ICs, including some obsolete types with no real protection against dumping except people not knowing how to wire them up.
