Planet Debian dead links
I have the habit of randomly browsing planet.d.o while drinking my
Today I ended up in a dead link, and I wondered if there are more of
those. So I gathered all blog links in a separate (public)
html file  and tried bashing it with a link checker tool .
The results are:
Status | Items found
2xx | 599
1xx/3xx | 102
4xx/5xx | 15
Secure | 5
Errors | 0
Timed out | 12
TOTAL LINKS: 733
I can repeat this test daily for 3-4 days, and then try to contact the
blog owners in order to update their own Planet entries, if that's OK.
With the risk of becoming known for my 404-phobia, I can try to take
care of any situation like this I may encounter.
You can run the test yourselves. Before that, I have to mention I
checked both the blog URLs and the feed URLs, so there may be only 8
404'd blogs. I plan to make some stats in 2-3 days from now on.
