This is really smart: I just uploaded the paper. It’s really hard to figure out what version of which paper can be shared when and under what constraints, so this is really helpful. (Though I often adopt an ‘I’ll ask for forgiveness rather than permission’ approach…) I wonder whether Mendeley has a similar feature?
