Have timed link validation to make sure that urls are still valid

Registered by Vadim Peretokin on 2008-07-23

Basic idea:

(09:01:45 PM) climatewarrio1: the other think that we hae to check is that the .inf file makes sense
(09:02:01 PM) climatewarrio1: we should dowload the driver and check if the inf file is really there
(09:02:12 PM) climatewarrio1: that's the importance of the moderator
(09:02:19 PM) vadi2: or even do that on a timed basis
(09:02:30 PM) vadi2: or well. do driver mirrors have a tendency to die or no?
(09:02:53 PM) Wofl_: not really
(09:03:00 PM) Sparragus: maybe a driver should be able to be publish but with an alert sent to queue or something like that...and the we check them.
(09:03:02 PM) vadi2: ok, so scratch that.
(09:03:10 PM) Wofl_: we can have it download every driver once per month
(09:03:18 PM) Wofl_: just to check that the file is still there
(09:03:28 PM) vadi2: Yeah
(09:03:40 PM) Sparragus: That sounds good
(09:03:40 PM) climatewarrio1: yep broken links are a big pain
