The quest for the Freeciv source Edit

Freeciv is a successful example of open source development, so it is interesting to see how its code base developed over time. However, most of the Freeciv code before it was put into CVS seems to have vanished – we have dug up source for versions 1.0 and 1i, but nothing else.

If you can find source code for other early versions of Freeciv (1.5.2 or before), please let us know so we can add it to the list at

Thank you!
