I tried to download everything from the thumbnail view at
http://lib.povray.org/searchcollection/index2.php. I count 91 files offered for
download. Some zip files I could not download. I downloaded 89 .zip files. 54
..zip files have 80 .pov files that compile correctly into 80 .png files. The
other 35 .zip files have 68 .pov files that would not compile. In povray.org,
the same file is listed several times, but with diffrent names. Case in some
filenames do not match case in the .pov script. I renamed some files, but I did
not try to fix them all. My result is posted at
http://pdscript.com/p/debian/povorg8/povorg8.htm. I used povray version
1:3.7.0.0-8, which is in debian 8.5.

The object collection is painfully case-blind: some contributions were 
made from Windows at a time where the local filesystem was transforming 
filename to a single case (either all lower or all uppercase, IIRC DOS 
was all uppercase).

It take a bit of debugging when using on a filesystem which honors the 
case of filename.

You can now find everything from the collections (and more: 3dclouds was 
added there) in github:

If something happens to Le_Forgeron then it will stop working too.

Even if I'm not anymore on the Internet, you could always fork it and 
even try to reclaim it from github later (if you care).

Or do you have a plan to get github's server down ?
