Ah, here we go. The first Catholic conspiracy nut.
text files aren’t that large, that much storage space can only be needed for hi-res scans.
I assume you are correct. On the flip side, the Vatican has more stuff stored away, that will never see the light of day, than any other institution in the world(I might be exaggerating a bit, but one can never tell when all the info isn't out there).
The question will be as to how much of it will be available to those who are merely curious.
BTW, this isn't news ~ just the letting of a contract ~ finally!
