Well, there's an archive of tons and tons of Aussie stuff at this
gopher site:

Name=COOMBSQUEST Soc. Sci. & Humanities Information Facility (A.N.U.)
Name=soc-science-software at coomspapers otherarchives

I'm pretty sure there are search facilities in the gopher menus around
these two places that will locate anything that's been archived on
that topic (assuming it exists). Happy hunting!
