If you were using it in 1992, then you probably know more history than
most others on this list.  I've only been using it since 1995 with
b12 and b13.  But I remember seeing a brief summary of the complete
history at one time but what would seem to be the obvious pointer on 
the main page doesn't point to what I remember (points to the FAQ 
instead for some reason).  Anyway, as I recall, it went all the way back
to b1, though I don't know when Cygnus started distributing it publicly
(it was originally used internally to help with ports).
