I tried the wayback machine before posting here -- mosly dead links due to robots.txt, as I recall. Lots of sites are that way, mostly hit or miss. That is why it seemed so strange that archive.org has huge downloads available for almost all old kindle firmware updates (really large files tat you can still download from amazon), when really valuable content is gone and not archived. I wish more of openinkpot (especially the github) had gotten archived somewhere.

Sadly, that link I mentioned as not helpful, estimates the source code value (based on manhours) at 170 megabucks. Sad for so much effort to evaporate like that.

https://www.openhub.net/p/openinkpot/estimated_cost

The other sad thing is that that link also claims that the git.openinkpot.org source was verified just 4 months ago, but I see that the domain name has expired now (as it was months ago when I checked it). Strange.

Hmm... some links at openhub require logins. I wonder if the sopeninkpot source MIGHT be hidden there if I register. Worth a try. They do claim 64 download sites. Hmm, geekmaster has already been taken -- I do not recall using that site, so probably somebody else (though I have used geekmaster "handle" since pre-internet days).
