This paper, which was published in TUGboat 14, no.3, October 1993, pp.342-351., outlines the concept, development, and use of the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN) --- a network-accessible archive for files related to the TeX family of document processing. I have not been able to compile this .tex file, so if you're interested in the subject you will have to read the source file instead of a formatted version.
