Some years ago, a couple of people from the webteam pinged everyone having
submitted an entry, and updated/removed entries as the replies arrived.  It
would be great to have someone do this in an organised manner.
Seems like the needed first step before considering to put more light
into this section: making stuff more visible, when we know some of them
are outdated for years, may not worth the effort (it may rather send the
wrong signal).
I wonder if it would be ideal to instead start the listing over from the last years submissions to the present, which would give us a reasonably 'fresh' listing. This would as well allow for some recent testimonials when we reach back out to those organizations as part of the update process.

As one of the last person who tried to update the oldest entries, I’d be
very happy to see something more organized around it. The scripts I used
should be in CVS, and we’ve add a few mails on debian-www the last time
we started working on that, but I’d be happy to provide more guidance to
motivated people if needed.
I can assist.

Best regards,

Donald Norwood
