To this end, I have submitted http://iem.at/mailinglists/pd-list/ to 
Google for re-indexing at  http://www.google.com/addurl.html
Hopefully, all will all be re-grooved in a month or two.

If the root page of the newly indexed PD-list had been renamed, then 
Google could be requested to REMOVE the old entire tree from its index.  
As it stands now, it could take YEARS for the old (broken) links links 
to fade from the search results.

1. Removing a page from the Google index.
Except in instances involving legal issues or spam, Google's policy for 
removing a page from our index requires that we obtain the permission of 
that page's webmaster. This prevents competitors from sabotaging each 
other's listings. Please have the webmaster for the page in question 
contact us with proof that he/she is indeed the webmaster. This proof 
must be in the form of a root level page on the site in question, 
requesting removal from Google. Once we receive the URL that corresponds 
with this root level page, we will remove the offending page from our 
index. For more information on this process, please see
