Since we have no control over Patrick's offsite content, after some 
courtesy redirect period of time we should remove that and other 
subdomains altogether, together with other defunct pages. I also like 
ready redirecting smaller pages to the wiki as you suggested.

    Hi *,

    There's a whole lot of v-hosts belowlinuxaudio.org  <http://linuxaudio.org>. The recent
    migration of vhosts gave rise to rethink and hopefully consolidate others.

    Let me first list the "good ones" and them move on to suggestions for
    the cruft. Please comment on my suggestions there. If you don't, you
    forfeit your right to complain later :-)

    == The good ==

       mostly OK - it's a drupal that could use some lovin'.

       301 ->  http://linuxaudio.org/resources
       historical URL.

       ~15 regular editors and content-maintainers
    200 casual contributors

       301 ->  http://wiki.linuxaudio.org/apps/
       historical URL; the wiki started as "apps"

       the conference collections
       could use some promotion from the www front-page.
       lots of good resources - proceedings, videos from presentations etc.

       feed aggregation of user-blogs
       The planet features two hidden "moons" that will need announcement:

       307 ->  http://linuxmusicians.com/
       following discussion in 2008 if LAO should host a forum
       we agreed on redirecting and supporting linuxmusicians

       icecast server
       loop: best of LAM '08-'10 by DJCJ (P.Shirkey)
       misc and temp. live-streams (e.g. LAC stream-relay)

       mirror of various software, sound samples, distros and misc stuff
       This is also the primary server forhttp://lilypond.org/

       mailman -- email lists
       moderated and administrated by M.O. Barre.

    == The questionable - vhosts that may need work ==

    ntly a
    simple stub-page for LADs.
       ?? ->  redirect tohttp://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/lad  ??

       outdated endeavor from 2008 by yours truly. The idea was to track
       and mirror code repositories. Since superseded by github et al.
       ?? ->  should be removed !

       302 ->  http://linux-audio.com/
       Linux Audio Users Guide - some useful information (read-only curated
       by P.Shirkey)
       IMHO the content of this site should be merged into
       to allow to being updated by the LAU community.

       The conten!
    t was
    deleted from LAO on April/22/2012 after it
       was migrated tolinux-audio.com  <http://linux-audio.com>  by its maintainer.
       We do have a backup in case s.o want to keep it alive at LAO

       ?? keep redirect | use wiki ??

       301 ->  http://quicktoots.linux-audio.com/
       Tutorials - mostly pre 2004
       the up-to-date stuff should probably go toflossmanual.net  <http://flossmanual.net>

       the content was deleted from LAO on April/22/2012 after it
       was migrated tolinux-audio.com  <http://linux-audio.com>  by its maintainer.
       We do have a backup in case s.o want to keep it alive atla.org  <http://la.org>
       ?? ->  should be removed ??

       pretty m!
    dysfunct site of Linux VST Compatibility
       not sure what to do with it. - previously maintained by Tim Orford

       low-latency info for linux-2.2 and linux-2.4
       some general good info but pretty much outdated.
       it's a single page in that v-host. Should become a wiki-page
       ?? 301 ->  http://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/lowlatency  ??

       an initiative started by P. Shirkey in 2009 - seems dead
       ?? not sure ??

       an initiative by P. Shirkey(?) in 2011 - never got started
       ?? not sure - delete it ?!

    == Misc/other good v-hosts ==

       things where I keep tempoprary stuff and do site development things
       the docroot 307 redirects to my website

       excellent LA software - more bang per byte.

       server statistics
       ?? should those be password protected ??
       some of the AWstats may be used to track users (e.g. top 10 host list)
