Thanks a lot.

We can add as much as we want, any useful link has its place there! We will
come back to you with a suggestion

We have indeed such a tool that check for updates etc. For now we are
displaying a message on the vocab page (e.g.
http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/vocabs/vag). In the future we will allow
user to register and bind to their agent so we will be able to contact them
Another update in the pipeline is to check for host DNS validity as
suggested by Dan Brickley.

The new architecture is now way more reliable and will make easier further
