[Haskell-cafe] Many broken links

I find, quite often, links to haskell.org/xxx pages that have disappeared;  
isn't it possible to just copy all of these pages, to the original  
location, before the old server disappears?

I used the W3C link checker[0] to check links from the GUI libraries  
page[1]; the following pages were reported missing:
  - http://haskell.org/FranTk
  - http://www.haskell.org/fruit/
  - http://haskell.org/ObjectIO
  - http://haskell.org/graphics/

Other (sets of) pages that are missing:
  - http://haskell.org/gtk2hs/
  - http://haskell.org/hdirect/
  - http://www.haskell.org/~simonmar/
  - http://www.haskell.org/sitewiki/
  - http://www.haskell.org/all_about_monads
  - http://darcs.haskell.org/hfuse/
  - http://darcs.haskell.org/yaht
  - http://haskell.org/haskore/
  - http://www.haskell.org/yampa/
  - http://darcs.haskell.org/~lemmih/
and probably many more.

I suppose some of the maintainers have left, but the pages might still  
have some value.

Some pages might be copied to the HaskellWiki, if the author gives  
permission to do so.

It would also be good, to know which of these pages are obsolete, so that  
the links to these pages can be removed.
