I downloaded seamonkey-1.1b.source.tar. There is a file:

  gc/boehm/README

This says:

     (Both are also available from
     http://reality.sgi.com/boehm/papers/, among other places.)

There is nothing at this location. I think it can be found at:

I don't think this is an MDC bug.  Anyone know where it should go?

The information is in a file checked in to the project. It looks as though all, or almost all, of that information is out of date. So, a first step could be removing it from the source. Then, if there is information that is valid, that can be put into MDC.

So, is there any information here that should go onto MDC? With that determination, it will be clearer that something can be done with the copy of the information in the source.
We should CVS remove Boehm, IMO, but brendan should weigh in here too.  It was once useful for doing some leak detection, but we have many other such tools now, and the Boehm stuff in our tree is not going to be useful (whatever customization it had will be woefully out of date, and if there is no customization then both people who want to wedge it into our allocator for their own amusement can as easily start with the pristine upstream source).

It's not an MDC bug, though, indeed.  I'm gonna move it elsewhere and see if it sticks!

Yes, let's please remove gc/boehm... we can get better numbers with various tools like valgrind, dtrace, etc.
Do you have to ask? Remove at will.

Anything more to do here, or is this one fixed (bsmedberg cvs removed mozilla/gc/boehm this morning)?

Might need some additional cleanup for mentions of it in the build system.  That could be a followup.
Removed the references.
