wiki: dead links on hardware pages

Post by ali4000 » 04.05.2019, 18:08

I'm looking a lot on the diy hw pages since I am interested in building my own to keep costs down. All my switches are LGB 1201 EPLs, so I was truly interested in ORA-1 since it is one of the few I have come across that supports multiple dual-pole single coil switches. But I noticed all the ORA pages' links are dead:

Page: https://wiki.rocrail.net/doku.php?id=ora1-en

- No schematics or pcb layout files available.
- https://github.com/rocrail/GCA/tree/master/ora-1 doesn't exist
- http://www.lis.inpg.fr/realise_au_lis/kicad/ is dead -- Official KiCad page is at http://kicad-pcb.org/
- All shopping carts pointing to http://www.reichelt.de/ turn up empty.
- avr_programmer (all bazaar.launchpad.net links) are dead.

Similar for https://wiki.rocrail.net/doku.php?id=ora2-en

- No schematics or pcb layout files
- https://github.com/rocrail/GCA/tree/master/ora-2 doesn't exist
- Wrong KiCad link again
- Image links point to launchpad.net and are all broken

The same is true for the german pages (I double checked, just in case only the English page was out of date)

Are the plans and layout available somewhere else, or is it now recommended to go for the original OpenDCC designs (I am not clear about how they differ since schematics are missing)?

I notice there is a brand new rocrail github account created in January this year, but it doesn't have any public repos at all or any other visible activity yet. Is this the real rocrail project or a bogus account?

Thanks!
