I would love to apply for FTP access and also love to contribute whatever I may be able to. However, to get FTP access, one of the criteria is that you must contribute a "unique release".

So what I'm wondering is, how can I make sure that what I'm contributing is unique? I don't want to try to upload something if it will only be deleted because it already exists on the servers. Is there a list somewhere that I can reference for this purpose?

Make an offer of your stuff in the Offers/Downloads forum and we'll tell you what we're interested in.

The online and offline listings of what is on the FTP, so he can find what is not on there.

Your post says he should post what he has to offer and you can compare it with listings.
I say he should check the listings and then just upload what's unique and abandonware according to the official guideline.

Just because we have it doesn't mean its 100% up to standard. We'll accept stuff we already have if its better quality than the version we have and/or has scans.
