Could you be more specific about which pages of the website contain
TLDP links and which of those links you would like to remove or

We have quite a few references to TLDP.org (just try the Google search 'site:www.debian.org link:www.tldp.org') both in content which is part of the website and documentation (manuals) which is built from other sources (DDP SVN) and added to the website.

But I believe the main reference Tom mentions is in the "Documentation" section: https://www.debian.org/doc/index.en.html  

There we make references to the TLDP documentation in the "HOWTOs", "FAQs" and "manual pages" sections. We might want to revisit how the information is structured there based on the fact that TLDP might be somewhat out of date. Bearing in mind that being "old" does not mean "out of date". For example, reading the "Linux FAQ" (which is at least 13 years old) I find some of the content fully relevant today.

In any case please note that, In some translations (AFAIK the Spanish or French), the links to www.tldp.org have been updated to point to other documentation projects: es.tldp.org in the Spanish case and traduc.org in the French case. These might (or might not) be more current than the documentation in the TLDP site.

Just my 2 c
