 Well, mail forwarding has now been set up for my old LMO address, and so 
I believe for Ralf's.  Any other resources remain unavailable.

 While most resources have been migrated I think the wiki was unique and 
valuable.  Perhaps we could preserve read-only references to archive.org 
dumps?  It's not clear to me what our policy is here though, if any.

 Let's see if the copy of this message intended for Ralf bounces.

 It's on archive.org, marked rejected:

<https://web.archive.org/web/20180829170737/https://patchwork.linux-mips.org/patch/1541/>

or alternatively: <https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/210989/> (with 
no proper status).  Given the note it might make sense to re-evaluate the 
patch.  Thanks for the heads-up!

 Note that a copy of the LMO tree remains available online at: 
<git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ralf/linux.git>, so any 
references or git commit IDs are reachable.  Perhaps it would be good to 
add an actual reference somewhere though.
