I have seen the menagerie mentioned in bug reports, but could never find this 
publically.

There is no particular protocol I am interested at, it was an idea to improve 
regression testing. Right now I am looking at all dissectors below TCP (or on 
top, depending on how you look at it).


By the way, could I get delete permissions for attachments for the 
SampleCaptures page on the wiki? There are a bunch of duplicates (and even 
some empty files) listed as attachment and not linked. Some are not even
captures files although their extension suggest so.

Empty files:
mount-de.pcap.gz
omron-test-csum.pcap
wireshark.org.pcap.gz

Not pcap (but tcpdump text output or even a media file):
packetout.pcap
RTSP.pcap

Duplicates can be found with:
md5sum * | sort | uniq -w32 -D | while read sum file; do echo $sum $(date 
+"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M" -r "$file") "$(du -hD "$file")"; done

Are there known efforts to index the files? I don't think that the wiki is a 
sustainable way to collect them?

Kind regards,
Peter
