Status: Closed Time to complete: 120 hrs Mentors: Gavin Atkinson Tags: DocBook, links, documentation, SGML, 404, FreeBSD

Description of task

The FreeBSD Project maintains a link on its webpage to external sites where commercial vendors offer services around FreeBSD: Some of these sites might not be available anymore, have moved or may contain new information no longer related to FreeBSD. In order to keep that web page up to date, the objective of this task is to go through all the links and check whether the vendors still exist and still offer the services they advertise as described.

This task requires you to check all links within the "Consulting Services" section.

Please obtain a copy of the page source (see the "Task requires" section below). For each link, verify whether the link is still valid. If you find that a homepage has moved to a new location, update the broken links accordingly. If the information the link pointed to does not exist anymore (i.e. vendor is out of business) and an alternative site can not be found, if it has been replaced by a new site (like a page for linkfarming), or if the company no longer appears to offer the services mentioned, make a list of these and discuss with your mentor whether just the link or the whole vendor information should be removed.
