Check the FreeBSD handbook's bibliography appendix B for broken links/references

completed by: Anikan

mentors: Gavin Atkinson

Description of task

The FreeBSD handbook's bibliography appendix B contains many links to external sites: Some of these sites might not be available anymore, have moved or may contain new information not related to FreeBSD. In order to keep that section up to date, the objective of this task is to go through the whole appendix B and check whether the links are still correct and point to the source mentioned in the text. Broken links should be reported to your mentor. If you find other (updated) links that contain the information, update the broken links accordingly. If the information the link pointed to does not exist anymore, discuss with your mentor whether just the link or the whole information should be removed.

Task requires:

A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer. 
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project:
Check out a copy of the documentation tree from the documentation repository to get the source code for the chapter
Knowledge on how to research information on the internet
Thorough work style
