Given that you're posting on this list, I think you have the information, but here isThe "message history" at the bottom of that page has exactly one message, from

Ah, I see. My bad, I didn't go to the "subgroups" sidebar in the nav menu:
The lists were moved over to "Group.io" some years back, and that page shouldYeah, that kind of link rot happened to every project that vanished into the maw
of the Linux Foundation. I lamented the demise of lanana.org (and their links
going 404) in a blog entry last year:
I have personal copies of ELF ABI specs (like sh4) that aren't on
https://refspecs.linuxfoundation.org/ but is there any point trying to get their
attention? And we all famously know what happened to the Linux Standard Base.

Meanwhile, https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/ did NOT get eaten by the linux foundation and
is thus still there, man7.org is still Michael Kerrisk's baby (although he
hasn't commited to the git repo in a year, I thought he might have quietly
vanished like the Mepis maintainer did but his twitter account's still active)...
Many of the materials from the CELF Public Wiki were put onto the elinux wikiDid not get eaten by the linux foundation, thus is still there. (Although Bill
Traynor deleted his contact info from the about page, hasn't posted to twitter

still up, so...)

visit there had videos on bootlin, https://bootlin.com/blog/elc-2006-videos/ )
but you're right, the download links under "get flash player" are local on that
website. (Would/should bootlin want to mirror them, perhaps?)
Oh, speaking of ELC videos, did I ever mention that a kind j-core contributor

Thanks for the report. I'll see what I can get fixed on the site next week.This list _is_ still used. Mostly as the jamboree announcement list, but that's
Unfortunately people keep handing over resources to the linux foundation and
their idea of "embedded" is yocto (where core-image-minimal builds host versions
of gnome libraries). A lot of places like
http://vger.kernel.org/vger-lists.html#linux-embedded have tumbleweeds and
crickets chirping. I know plenty of people still doing embedded development but
they refuse to interact directly with the linux or gnu communities.
Speaking of yocto, the existence of
https://events.linuxfoundation.org/kvm-forum/ means it's unsurprising that
qemu's "./configure; make; make install" inserts 3.7 gigabytes of files into
/usr/local/bin. (The devuan operating system ISO is 1.2 gigabytes. The whole
pool1.iso of EVERYTHING is only 5.) Meanwhile Fabrice is off doing
https://bellard.org/tinyemu/ which is a 250k source tarball; plenty of good work
is BEING done. It's just not coupled to anything The Linux Foundation has ever
touched, because hobbyists scatter when they move in.
*shrug* No idea what to do about that.
