Quake Standards Group
Quakesrc.org redirects to and is apparently parked by an Israeli ISP of some kind or another:
I figured I would post links to the archived versions and duplicated content as I come across them.
For the old tutorials: http://www.quake-1.com/docs/quakesrc.org/
For the site itself, the last useful copy on the web archives is: http://web.archive.org/web/20071027092929rn_1/www.quakesrc.org/news/
After that date the archive doesn't have much except for a splash page about the site going down and/or SQL errors.
Given that the quakesrc forums were where most of the useful information actually was (far beyond the few things that actually got made into tutorials), here is a direct link to them from that date: http://web.archive.org/web/20071010020551/www.quakesrc.org/forums/
The links within the forum don't work, but they should give you an idea what to search for within web.archive.org.
While searching for the quakesrc.org information, I discovered that Pat Aftermoon (frequent quakesrc contributor) already has something like this up on his site: http://www.aftermoon.net/quakesrc-index.html.
Additionally, this inside3d thread provides a bunch of useful information: http://forums.inside3d.com/viewtopic.php?p=9633&sid=1fa0162e83342ddf810f9e45b89fb49f
I hope that somebody finds this useful. When I get some time, I might try to extricate my Bleeding Eye Studios forum and see what I (NeVo) had in there (I still have the vast majority of the code for my Quake2 project, but I do not recall where I left off). L
