I agree and I strongly believe it was and remains the idea. (to let
the contributor inform and authorize about a certain document, keeping
the hits/credits on the contributor side).

What about creating a form to save  the authors, urls and a short
description, letting the comunity create their own entries,  saving
information in a /the database and regularly cronchecking these
objects to avoid 404's ? This should be managed and authorized by
someone tho. Wondering, moderators?

I can do that,  php / perl based. (form php, cron job running a perl
script, using lwp or alike).



Talking bout link checkers, I used the w3 web based one, which created
a good report about the situation. Anyway, what I did was to confirm
that these are broken links, and not syntax mistakes, wrong urls. That
report is attached as a .zip
