Thanks, Geir - there was a half written msg with exactly this topic  
in my outbox... I fully agree with you that at least anything which  
is subject to a vote should directly include all the relevant  
information - no links for substantial content, just for extras like  
fancy PDFs describing the architecture or tarballs of the initial  
codebase etc.

This may sound a bit picky but everything else unfortunately comes  
with too many disadvantages (no real archives, dead links, no offline  
access, etc.).
