There's an "unofficial mirror" at (https://github.com/vadz/libtiff). Its update is 5 days ago. Is it reliable? most recent

This mirror has a good reputation. The last CVS commit was on 2016-09-04 so the mirror seems to be up to date.

I ask because I've posted on my file-formats blog about the situation

> (https://madfileformatscience.garymcgath.com/2016/09/08/libtiff-offline/) and

would like to mention that as a stopgap link, but I want to make sure

it's OK.

To make things totally clear, libtiff has not at all "disappeared from the Internet". The only thing which is currently lost is a URL hosting the exact same HTML files which are to be found in the html directory of each libtiff tarball and in the CVS repository.

As far as I am aware, all other libtiff services are still on-line.
