Description

Dead links are starting to appear in svn, the most recent 2 I've discovered are zip and unzip, both http and ftp are dead, the ftp doesn't seem to work, and the http mirror service doesn't seem to host it any more. Also another user has done some more extensive searching into the status of the links, I'm putting the link here for future reference.

See Ticket #2205 for info about zip/unzip.

I don't believe the vulnerabilities in the current version have anything to do with it not being available, the vulnerability is mentioned clearly on the home page yet mentions nothing about it being either temporarily or permanently unavailable. The packages are still available from sourceforge without any sign of there being anything wrong. http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=118012

Fixed the bad URLs except for 5 which are still outstanding.

1) Pilot-Link (works if you click on the link using a browser,

but not using wget)

2) ImageMagick (known issue identified in the book) 3) ISO Codes (known issue waiting for a resolution) 4) and 5) KOffice (will be fixed when Bruce commits the KOffice update)

Reopening so that the ISO Codes download URLs are moved to the Anduin package server (waiting on the server to become populated with the current version)
