I would be very interested to read and study a webpage detailing the history 
of the different satellites.  There's sure no shortage of content!  With so 
many hams having 'hands-on' experiences to be shared, as well as reams of 
technial data which sometimes only exists in the brains of living hame 
today, it could be of incalculable benefit to future satellite builders who 
can learn from the successes, and no-less-importantly the failures 
experienced by these programmes!
These mailing-list messages and the archives which appear on google-searches 
have been my source for such information thus far, but it leaves much to be 
desired for sure.
I've noted that when reading inquiries from come recent cube-sat builders, 
easy access to such a history could lead to larger steps in innovation, and 
prevention of repeat-failures.
