Okay, I'll rephrase the question: which 32-bit OSes are scheduled to be dropped?

The best way to work out which operating systems that entails is by having a look in the 'engines' folder of RunRev 1.1.1 or thereabouts.
Actually, you'd be better off looking at the stand alone settings dialog, unless you had previously downloaded those engines (which can't be done anymore, at least through the dialog for doing it) :?

IFF LiveCode could send me a signal that what I propose is acceptable I could
upload those engines to my DropBox account and post the link here.

Of course things would be "much nicer" if LiveCode would just make all
the old versions of RR/LC publicly available directly from them.

What are you proposing, and what is the business case for LiveCode in doing it?

1. I am proposing uploading the engines from RunRev 1.1.1 or 2.0.1
to my dropBox account and making them publicly available.

2. LC, business case. None as far as I can see.

3. LC, "being friendly & making a good impression". Quite a lot I should think.
