Well, that sounds fine - no pressure.

Since the wiki is probably an easier way (read as: self-serve, for the
wiki-enabled) to maintain it, maybe I could leave the newer ones (7+)
for the wikiers to maintain going forward, and I could keep the older
ones for historical purposes.  The latter is obviously easier for me
to maintain. :-)  And I think that it's the newer ones that are
probably more useful.

Maybe put mine at the bottom and mention that the older dmesgs are at
my place, so that people who are looking for the current stuff will
see the useful content first.

No worries there - I was pleased to see it as-is!

Aside: I've got a simple shell script to count them, cull out a couple
of details, and package them up ... but it's nothing like the NYCBUG
dmesgd (  Part of me wants to just
have everybody use that, since it's searchable.  And part of me wants
to roll my own.  But it's probably not worth the cycles.
