For the references, I realize that you are referring back to previous posts, but it might also be nice to list any real references - for example any text taken from a Gaz that describes the map in some way. This would be especially useful for updated maps as opposed to the replica maps (which are just pure copies - complete with errors and all).

It's a matter of server space, but also of not wanting to maintain two separate collections of map files - I would have to update both every time I want to update a map.
The negative side of this is that the Wiki stores the maps in such a way that it's very hard to link to them directly from elsewhere. That in theory is good, but in my case I link to my maps from the Piazza all the time. Changing the location of the files would make all these links dead, and reduce my ability to post maps inline. It would instead be necessary to post links pointing to the appropriate page of the Wiki.

If anyone is interested in helping out, please let me know and I'll set you up with editing permissions.
