There is an "official" way to utilize LDP content and that is to
register to become an mirror site. All the sites above are *NOT*
listed as mirrors.

Content can become outdated rather quickly, as Stein points out.
This can cause major headaches for all involved (esp. for the
consumers of the information).

It is highly recommended that if you wish to utilize the LDP
content, you become an official LDP mirror site owner.
