yes exactly, transferring existing content that you want to share.

well allowing someone to post on w3c site is not that easy compare to a 
download feature. And mailing-list, a part from the issues of size and 
so on, is not particularly practical: limit public involvement or your 
archive have to be public and so on. It is for me a workaround that 
works but it seems easy to get the right extensions allowed.

btw, If you want to test this setup on uwa wiki, you are welcome
Cheers
Steph
