It is indeed problematic that the Unix history repository is missing the 
Research Editions.  At the time I created it, the source code of the 
Research Unix Eighth and Ninth Editions wasn't openly available.  I'm 
now discussing with another member of this list for a pull request to 
add them.  Incorporating them properly isn't trivial, because various 
mappings are needed to establish authorship information and to allow 
git-blame to work across snapshots of moved files.
