    Oh, I did not say that one person maintains the website. What I meant
    is that one person/company checks all the websites. There are tools on
    the market that will scan all your pages and check them for dead links
    (a good free one is at http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html).
    Then the dead links (and often they wil be shared my many websites)
    could be chased to see if they just moved site structure, moved to a
    new website or completely gone. The final result would be sent to the
    individual site maintainers and they can update the links wholehog,
    rather than one by one as people discover them.

    I don't fully agree on that one. Perfection should be a goal, not a
    pre-requisite. It is worth knowing that Dubai group existed at some
    point and be able to chase from there, than not to know about it at
    all.
    
    Regards,
       Alex.
