Well, I think the other editing the file might haven't seen the
statement in the header, like I did ;)

A colleague at work told me that.  So I checked the german vendors yesterday
(there are two with quite outdated, I pinged both, one mail bounced, the
other one said they will update their offerings soon).

This shows us an important fact:  Checking the URLs is not enough (all
german vendors had valid URLs), someone needs to check the content of
the URLs too (and I think that can't be automated).  Guess that would be
my job, since I set the ball rolling...

If no one else volunteers (or has a good idea on how to automate
checking the contents for up-to-dateness), I'll try to do that as my
time permits to keep that data in good shape.

Might be a good idea, to add a log file, which vendor got pinged by
whome, and what their reaction and consequence was.

Yours sincerely,
