The link to AuthKit led to a page that talked about the benefits of a portable sink, so I changed it to a Wayback archive of the page.

A better link could be the hg repo, which is still there: https://hg.3aims.com/public/AuthKit

And since the description there notes it's a beta and the history notes it has not been touched in 2.5 years it should probably be moved to the "deprecated" section. The book of the Pylons project (to which AuthKit seems related according to its history, ben bangerts was one of the contributors) notes:

AuthKit, an older library, is no longer maintained.

Why not simply link to PyPi entry, even if the link off that to authkit.org is wrong.

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/AuthKit

Yes, ought work better than directly linking to the hg repo as it also provides contact information.

@ironmagma

Why not both, since the PyPI page doesn't have documentation?

@masklinn

Both, as in the pypy page and the wayback page?

Closing this, I changed the link to the pypi page as suggested by graham, and moved AuthKit to the "deprecated" section
