OK, I changed the paragraph and I'm using your text almost verbose. I've
builtin a hotlink to your site to the /pub/linux-mips/ as the

Of course; the DECstation specific chapters of the Linux/MIPS webpages are
probably more than big enough to get their own webpage so it's a good
thing if you, the maintainer of the code also maintain the Web pages.
Just tell me when your page is ready and you get the link.

Nothing to add.
