Just as an example, the EBN (hm .. I no longer redirect EBN.org to the KDE 
site) still embeds a comment in the front page about a research project that 
ended in 2006 and points to my blog that stopped working in 2011.

I like Alexander's suggestion to make a Phab task for it. I'd dearly love to 
spend some time reinvigorating this stuff, but .. time is precious. I remember 
when re-tooling APIDOX around 2010 that it worked fairly effectively *because* 
we (the university of Nijmegen at the time) had a full SVN repo mirror locally 
for research purposes. That's no longer the case.
