It seems an inappropriate page now to keep in our source tree: the
developers are not the people best placed to maintain such a list. Much
better on a Wiki or some such; might even be appropriate for a Wikipedia
article, perhaps. But deleting it without first copying the content to
such an on-line resource seems a bit of a disservice to the users. It
would be good to have a suggested link in its place: "If you are looking
for support services, we recommend you use your favourite search engine,
or you could try the list at <URL>."

In the same vein, it is time to move our "Other software that uses
Subversion" section off to some Wiki.
