I'm perfectly willing to review email logs and remove personal stuff.
Just email it or make it available for FTP someplace.  I can place
the results on my own webserver and/or on the Xanadu/Udanax sites,
if their webmasters are available.

And if you've found the paper docs, you can save time and scan them
in or ship them to me and I'll scan and post them.

I realize you're busy but I'm willing to take on the job of recording
the technical legacy of Xanadu.  Right now I'm cleaning up the
Xanadu-Green sources, fixing some compiler warnings and adding blocks
of comments to each file/function.  The Xanadu-Gold sources are
giving me much more trouble as I don't know SmallTalk and although
I have a textbook here, its hard to relate the code to an unknown
algorithm re the Ent.
