The pages from Alex Faaborg's people site are either down or have been removed.

https://people.mozilla.com/~faaborg/

I'd like to have those pages put back up as they were please.  There are a number of bugs and other places that reference the work that Alex places in his people.mozilla account.

for example: bug 683635

Thanks!

Alex Faaborg does not work for us any more, according to phonebook.
This is why his people account got disabled. However, the files are still there.
I cannot enable that link unfortunately.
A solution would be to move the files into someone else account, but Alex will need to approve that.

This is not a new problem. What has been done in the past that allowed this to keep working when employees left (as this same exact thing has been requested multiple times)? Why can't you just chown faaborg's directory to some other user (apache, for example), which would keep it working?

All existing links need to continue to work.

There is no policy in place for such cases, thus I will go first through mrz/Corey/infrasec.

tl;dr
If an employee leaves the company, what happens to the files that were publicly available on people.m.o? The un-official hack was an Alias in apache to point the location back to the users public_html, but this sounds horrible to me.

Waiting for some infrasec policy on that.

I'm fine with providing continued read access to files on a per request basis (such as this).

This should be filed as a separate bug since it has nothing to do with the original request, thank you!
