Just one more way that we can contribute. All contributers
are generous with their time (= money).

I am not yet sure how often we will run it.

I just scheduled LinkAlarm to do its work again and will tell
the list when the report is finished.

At one cent per page it is not too bad. Last time there were
968 pages (it includes javadocs too). So that equates to about
US$10 per run. We can cope with that.

It is the javadocs that bumps up the page-count. We may decide
to exclude them. We could then run LinkAlarm more often.
